I bought it in January 2004 and have over the years completely stripped,cleaned and rebuilt it when necessary along with new parts where required and powder coating of wheels,forks and various brackets.

Very nice!
Find that the gold spot look better with that paint scheme.
Well done.

It was to stop stones breaking the headlight,and at the time i heard it could deflect signals from mobile hand operated speed cameras so the police could not get an accurate reading.I have since taken it off as it appears to be untrue.

Looks great!!
Is that seat cowl a genuine Yamaha one? Where did you manage to get that?
