First proper posting, hopefully the photo's make it through. Decided that the Roadster needed a makeover so here we go. First decision was whether to paint the original tins or buy a new set so that I could continue riding during the project. Checked the spares websites and new ones would require me selling a kidney and my first born to pay for them. Next up was Ebay where I struck lucky. Complete set of tins plus a flyscreen and the front emblem all for less than the price of the two mudguards from the stealers. Delivered quickly and all in really good condition structurally on first inspection. First job will be to get everything flattened, filled or repaired where necessary (never know what is lurking under the paintwork) then get it in primer. Not sure exactly what paintscheme I'm going for just yet.
