Thanks randtcastell, the paint is at best 90% atm so I may revisit some panels in the near future or after my next surgery. I'm keen to fit the nos indicators and finish her up but I'm guessing I'll backtracking a little on the painting, I have a spare set of decals. The 2 big fairings are sweet, asthe frt guard, seat hump , the tanks not bad it's mainly the seat base.

That looks bloody lovely! Nice work. And while I've currently made the choice to just bolt my 750 back together, rather than restore it, seeing work like this really gets me wondering whether I made the right choice! But yeah, I *think* I did - I can ride it for the summer, and then if I feel like it, take it apart again next winter for a cosmetic refresh.

I have been busy reworking the paint and happy to say it's probably more of a 95% on a bad day now so I will bolt her up and put the indicators on, I might just put the original mirrors on as they're in excellent condition. Hopefully she'll be rideable very soon, I'll post some updated photos soon as well, nr your idea of getting a summer full of riding and considering yor next move for the future sounds like a winner, enjoy the ride mate.
