I'm blown away, Chowder. The bike looks amazing. I love the yellow body and a touch of light blue combination. You planning any more work on it?

The engine has been fully stripped and all casings have been vapour blasted, perks of having all the equipment at work. Everything gets superfinished and vapour blasted 😊
