I managed to get some colour on it.
The frame is just Glassurit black

The tins are Acid Rush base, Roth Custard Pie metalflake, sprayed on with a flake buster, easy to use, then a number of coats of clear??

Heres the good news.

Took it for an inspection yesterday and it now has rego!!!!!
They even checked the noise level. Was 97.5 DB, allowed 100 .
I took it for its first ride last night and couldn't be happier, just got to adjust the clutch, was slipping a little , and its done.
See you on the road

Just spent the day on it, round near my mechanic mates place, bit of a shakedown day.
All went great, I am very surprised at how comfortable it is.
Handles a lot better than I expected and its got a fair bit of poke. Mind you its basically a new motor, crank, rods, barrels, pistons, new carbs, new mag.
I will bring it home next weekend and post some pictures.

Awesome, Scouser.!! Been watching this from the get go.
Great to hear it ended up more than you expected, always a bonus. Great workmanship. Congrats.
