Piccie 5

Final piccie of the tank, which shows the gold flick, just one of the four colours seen in this paintwork.

Donor bike 2001 Fi as seen in photo 1.

Project bike, 2000 rolling chassis as seen in photo 2.

Culminating in the bird with a coat of many colours !

I started this project in April '02 and finished it in late June '02, having done all the paintwork and mechanical work myself.

Taffy.

Fantastic job

Taffy, you are one talented guy.
I can do all that you do when I'm day dreaming but in reality I'm as much use as a tit on a bull pigs belly.
How do you find the time?
Any more projects in the pipeline?

I saw Taffys bike in the flesh at the meet we had in the Cotswolds last year

and I thought Dream Machine or some other paint job outfit had done the job. I couldn't belive it when he told us he'd done ALL the work himself. RESPECT :yo:
