If you seen Petes bike in the flesh well let's say the time he spends on other peoples bikes he dosnt spend to much Time on a bit of detail work on his.
So I'm Proberly gonna get called all kinda of names and how I've wrecked years of street cred and all the kinda stuff, I've given the old girl a good detail and polish.
I actually quite enjoy cleaning up bikes and cars, I call it detail therapy put some music on and
crack a beer.

Let's see what names he calls me tomorrow.

Well I suppose I'll go ahead and get you a plane ticket to fly to Austin for your therapy. I'd also like to help you by letting you clean our cars and bicycles and remodel the master bathroom.

At your service,
Tim

Please take pix.

Besides from us being able to see what might have been, Pete might even be able to use 'em one day if he decides to sell it.  Lord knows he couldn't use any "real" photos and expect any bites from the classified ads. Very Happy

Yup, it'll be one of those 'Pry it from my cold, dead, fingers' things.

OK, being sensible for a minute Ralf has done what I can never be arsed to do. Another bloke who I lent my Mana to after his RSV shat it's alternator on the way to Philip Island a couple of years ago did the same thing and I am extremely grateful.

I don't know what it is but even if I try and make my bikes look nice they always look like shit so??? I sort of gave up, about half a lifetime ago!Very Happy Don't get me wrong I like a pretty bike, although I accept that my idea of colour schemes doesn't fit the mainstream, but at the end of the day I really can't be arsed to keep my old shitboxes pretty. I do like it when they are though.

I have just bought a quartet of new indicators for the old turd. Since it's going to be raining all weekend I may even fit them. They are the same indicators used on my Mana which means they will plug right in but also they use 'Old Fashioned' incandescent globes. I must be the last man in the world who actually likes incandescent indicators but I'm OK with that and those who aren't can suck my one remaining ball!

Sorry, I won $280 on Daniel's, (Proprietor of Ogilvie's where my workshop is.) nag at the Tempra Trots this evening and we got a bit pissed! Razz

Well today I put my new indicators on. The old girl is looking pretty nice apart from her headlight. I had it painted but the paint didn't stick to the crappy plastic chrome. I hate chrome so it was worth a try.

Anyway, here's a couple of pics of it after Ralf titivated it.

well fuck me ........... it actually looks good Pete, in a Picasso sort of way, almost looks as good as it goes. You should encourage ralfz to 'borrow' it more often.

Ow my eyes! JESUS! Will everybody please stop encouragin' 'im? Ya fuckin' bunch o' sychophants! That's got to be the ugliest fuckin' GRiSO in the ghetto! We all love ya Pete, but gimme a break, your sense of aesthetics is a bit offensive, don't ya think?! I know, you've often said here, and elsewhere, that your color sense is a bit unconventional,  ("my idea of colour schemes doesn't fit the mainstream,") but PLEASE! Stop already! Hey, wait a minute....I know this doesn't mean a thing to you, but those of us living in the US of A will recognize your GRiSO as a Seahawks themed masterpiece!
Go HAWKS!

What you fail to understand is that it is usually 'Brake dust and Rust coloured'. I can't help it of I lend it to someone and he goes all pervy on it!
