Trust me Richard, it looks nothing like that
I've got one of the painted panels sitting in front of me and the silver metallic is amazing

Whilst I would acknowlege that pink is probably more like the right colour for Nev that wasn't the colour he chose.

There's been a few requests for updates on Nev's outfit, and work continues Phyllis has been working hard on mating the ural to the bike, and I was at his place today so took a few teaser shots of what he's done so far. Photos have been taken at every stage and Nev will no doubt post up the whole story at a later time. These pics don't really do justice to Phyllis's work, but when you see the full story you'll know what I'm talking about













Don't ask me any questions as I won't know the answers Phyllis is the genius so ask him

Wow!, fantastic work, thanks for the pics Clancy.

Interesting how Phil has put the front upper support behind the cylinder pot.

Again, looks fantastic.

Now comes the best bit.....watching Nev ride it for the first time

With Phyllis setting it up, it will be as good as it gets.

This weeks job lot is for him to fabricate and fit the raked out front tripple clamp, in lieu of Leading links.

He is confident that with the existing Telelever set up on GS's it will be comparable to a LL, and it will be adjustable.

How good is that?
