Hi SM. Yes I'm very pleased with the finished paint. Found today that one of the forks is bent, 1/4" out of line.Will take the other one off and check that too. Apart from that it is progressing slowly, hopefully get the rear mudguard back tomorrow and hope it is a good fit without too much messing about. Hey-ho, now to find a replacement fork leg--or 2!!

Hi. Well a phone call and 30 mile round trip saw me returning with a NOS fork!!  Arrived home and tried a fit---spot on no messing. Off to get it sandblasted and then into paint. Will update as and when.

Sounds like you are up and running again. Stunning paint job and the chrome on the wheels etc looks superb. It always pays to take time over something like this. Keep it up!
