Only had room for the wings and front mudguard on this trip. I'll pick up the tank, tailpiece and fairing when I go in tomorrow.

Just a pic of the front mudguard in the sun.

And it's got dust all over it, I know, but the pic is just to give you some sort of idea.

I've got to go dig up some speed nuts to hold the grills into the wings and tailpiece before I put it onto the bike.

Cool

Wow!!! That really pops. I'm looking forward to seeing it on the bike, in the sunlight.

Buggered if I know? Over here it's just known generically as 'Mazda Red'. I'll ask Jacko, the bloke who did it for me.

Every time I drive past a Mazda red car I tell the missus that Mazda have the best version of that colour. It will be interesting to see on the Guzzi

I think its called "RED FIRE METALLIC"...We had a 2005 Mazda Tribute we bought new and it looked just like the color on your tank.

The GRiSO Tourismo is due for a service and needs it's clutch master cylinder rebuilding/replacing as it's seals are gone and you can't change gear quickly as multiple, rapid, pulls result in not enough lift so the box won't shift! Mad  Pain in the arse but it's OK for just cruisin' about. Needs fixing though and I have the parts. AFTER that is done we'll swap the bodywork. Last thing I want to do is splash DOT 5.1 all over my spiffy new paint.

I also only have red badges for the 'Wings'. I asked Mark and he confirmed that red badges on *That* red would look like puke so I'll have to get some black ones, which of course are 'Nil Stock' at my supplier. Rolling Eyes No matter. I'll probably just cut some black vinyl wrap to shape to put in there until the badges arrive but it will need a bit of contrast or it will be overpowering.

Biggest problem though is this bike is now going to be so pretty I fear I'm going to have to do something about the exhaust. It's currently running Mark's thrice crashed Mistral Hi-Pipe and it's scruffy as buggery. It doesn't really worry me, especially as it will be hidden behind the pannier most of the time but Mistral make a very nice 'Fake Ti' version of the same pipe, (Peter Hill has one on his GRiSO.) that I think would look sweet with the paint.

(Sigh......)

Definitely will need black badges, Pete. Don't you have a stock "8" exhaust lying around? It'll be an instant classic.

That's purdy.

Didn't some of the Brevas and later EVs use a black badge? Would those fit? Or are they the same part?

Cali 14 'Touring' pannier badges. I have them on the yellow bike already.

It'll just take a few weeks for them to get here.

I pointed out a Mazda in that colour today to Leah, telling her that's your new paint colour.
She said, "Manly Maroon!"

I couldn't help myself, so I made some badges for you.

Yo Pete, I'm keen to take that Mistral HiRise off your hands once you're ready to part with it...

Well, no sun today so it isn't fully resplendent but

I was waiting on the badges for the wings. And then Michael told me I already had a set I'd ordered months ago! Rolling Eyes

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

And I got rid of the horrible Fleabay mirrors! They were just incredibly naff and shite so on went a set of originals.

Next and final step is mounting the bags!
