Simply awesome...... I always thought of a Carbon Fiber bike being a night mare to fix after a bike nap....... I feel better now. I think it is simply wonderful when you create a one of a kind.... as you have just done. Bravo.

I also fitted a beak extension. I had wanted one for a while as I like the look of them I also wanted to cover a few marks up.
The beak extension looks good servdave! Where did you find the beak?? I'd like to find one too.

I've got a stock one FS but it's a bit "experienced" and likely not for a show and shine owner. Our two bikes have a Carbon Fibre beak found on Ebay. If you're patient you can get a much cheaper "Blem" that looks perfect unless you get your face right into it.

I'd be open to look at your "experienced" stock one. PM me photos whenever you have time.

Scarlet is by no means a garage queen and features character lines on both sides... In fact she laughed and agreed that shes not a show and shine owner, when I quoted the post.
