Here's my bike on wednesday night before the 2 hour rideout. Baring in mind that it has not yet been serviced and is as it was put in the shed 11 years ago: Image

Indeed a lovely paint scheme. The rear hugger has been tossed, and the previous owner has made a new chain guard. Besides the turn signals and the GioCaMoto exhaust, the rest of the bike looks pretty much stock. Yes, that pipe is loud, but it does sound good. I spent Saturday behind Gunther who had the same pipe on his 750 Paso.

The rear fender has been trimmed down a bit also. I like the tinted wind screen. Looks good on that paint scheme.

Cheers, Phil

The screen is cracked :( but as its an original screen (little elephant) I'll just be getting some black vinyl and covering the crack on both sides to make it look like abit of trim, I would like a rear hugger but atm I'm abit short of money.

Someone on the list took a hugger from an SS and made it fit. Very similar. Some modification may be needed. Cheap on e-bay or other sources as a lot of folks put on carbon fiber bits.

Windscreens are on the website for Zero Gravity, but they don't always have them in stock.

Cheers, Phil

Do you mean the black circular "thing" behind the rider's footpeg?

If you do that's the glass tax disc holder used to hold and display (a legal requirement) the tax discs that show that the bike can be used on the road in Great Britain.

All vehicles MUST have AND display them. They show that the relevant tax (for use on the British roads) has been paid.

The vehicle will attract different levels of tax depending on size/age/use etc. Vintage cars/bikes are exempt if they predate a certain date (I think it's 1975 - I'm unsure). Even if the vehicle is exempt from tax they mut still display a ZERO tax disc to thet effect. While this seems crazy . . . to obtain the disc you must show a test certificate proving roadworthiness and a current insurance document.

Hope that helps

And the police have access to the National Database computer where all these records are stored, yet you can still be fined for not displaying a tax disc even though they know it is taxed :mad:

Ah we've only just gotten parking wardens, I parked my vespa on double yellows the other day and one walked straight past. Did all the cars but left the vespa haha. Tbh it's not clear enough about where bikes can park, there are no designated bike parks in my town (except for one which the fat ass with the trike takes up all of it!) they should make a little guide book about whether we can park on the pavement etc
