Yes it's been discussed before.

Conscious choice, I wanted the brembo squiggle on the same place on both sides and the writing starting in the proper place, eg at the top.

Their on the way they are from the factory to save them 'siding' the calipers, it's a money saving/stock decision by Brembo.

Ever seen any column with the writing starting at the bottom?

But what about the wheels? They are not "sided" either?

Did you have problems accessing the bulb holder? You saw the invoice I had from Rog on that issue? Alarm wiring??

No sadly not, however he's a decent mature guy who had one when he was younger and had been looking for an 'as new' one for a while, I've no doubt it'll be well looked after .

It was moved to this thread, as people don't seem to have the ability to post on the correct thread in the project section.

Thanks!

I think part of the reason for the sale was that I genuinely think it was as near perfect as sensible money could get it, it was at the stage I was worried about parking it anywhere other than my garage, I was almost scared to use it.

It finally struck me that this was silly. There's a lesson for me in here somewhere

A pleasant surprise!

I know I'm late to the party, but for someone who's been away from the fold a few years, and looking to put the old girl back on the road, this is truly inspirational stuff.

Thanks for sharing smile

Cracking job Duffy.
Very inspirational.
I take it you had access to a paint booth or the like?
What did you use to strip the original paint?
I want to start around the o/s/f say with the horns etc?
