    Doing what you are, it is a lot better than redoing the paint work. Would be alot of fun when your done!!!

    Need time to head back there to continue working on it. Going to be at a standstill for a couple of weeks, Off to Sydney for work tomorrow for a few days, then heading away camping for the weekend, and on the Monday travelling to Mumbai, India for a week for work.

    Oh yeah, on top of that Sarah had a small high side on the R1 and the insurance company decided to write it off for her without consulting her. So we bought it back off and have a repairable write off (The sub-frame alone was worth buying it back) that I need to fix up and get re-registered.

    Bought a rolling chassis in Adelaide with some parts we'll use to fix the R1 and a front end possibly for the CB (in time). Just working on getting that shipped up soon hopefully.

    Shed is starting to look a bit messy

    Just trying to also finalise on a 6m X 7.6m shed (garage) to be put in near the house too. That will be a 'clean' garage and will move a couple of bikes down to there possibly, whereas the top shed is a working shed. Getting it set up slowly, unfortunately seem to keep running out of time, lol

    Yeah, but what about the paint Jules?! Na, just kidding mate. Looks like it will be scary fun to ride when you're done, lots of smiles per hour to come mate.

    Will it weather well with no protective coating? Admittedly; it looks great without anything on it.

    I'd paint it, as soon as you get water on hot alloy it will mark and look like crap.
    Great base to start with though.
