Re: Fuel tank fitment

This one isn't off by much but there are wear marks on fairing panels due to it being off by a little bit.

I wondered if the two threaded bits on the underside were from the factory to locate the mount.

There was always some weird panel fitment and the opening around the headlight never seemed right. Yeste...

Re: Akront/Marvic wheels

Sunny and cold so I did a quick loop around the neighborhood and all seems to work as it should. Steve at Bevel Heaven suggested getting small shims to fine tune the spacing. I ordere...

Akront/Marvic wheels

Just some traffic on the forum and to commiserate I offer up some pictures of my conversion from stock 16" wheels to a set of Akront/Marvic rims. A classic case of buying something complete is much cheaper than fixing up something in rough shape. I found the wheels on a Japanese auction site fo...

Re: Happy New Year! Now go ride!

Every year it seems winter lands later and later in Boston. Wheel spacers are done and disks have arrived. Hopefully I can get it out for a spin before it all lands.

Best

Bodywork fasteners

Over the last few months I've been slowly working on quarter turn fasteners for the Paso. Here are a few pictures of the progress. Once I know the fitment is right I'll coat them in satin black.
