    Hi Lads, I have finally broken ground on the rebuild and so far I'm just stripping the easy stuff off. Progress is slow but no issues so far. Been on the site a long time and have been meaning to do this for just as long. Ok, my first question so far is what do you guys think the nick my...

    There's this small little place in a place called Molesey, near Hampton Court (KT8), which specialise in crash repair. I thought this bloke called Jino was worth a mention on the basis that he's totally amazing at paint. A few years back I gave him a XL600V radiator cowl faring in blue to spray...

    Do any of you ggod folk of the XRV forum know anyone who airbrushes helmets and what sort of price they charge. I know this will depend on the design, but just a rough guide will be good enough. Cheers :D:D
  17. Varadero
    It took me ages...almost 3 weeks to be precise. I am now totally sick and tired of rubbing down! I have learnt a lot and would have done a few things differently in hindsight! I tried to link the photos but Picassa won't let me :( The link is here...

    Firstly, I'd just like to introduce myself. I'm a thirty something bloke from near Basingstoke. I have a wife and 2 kids, so don't get to do enough tours on the bike! I can't wait until they grow up <wishing my life away!> but as the second one is only a year old, it may be a while yet. I have...
