    Big thank you to Chris for my 2006 GSA colour change - first sunny ride out yesterday - people asked me where I bought that stripe and letters and complimented me on doing a great job of sticking them on - when I said every bit was hand sprayed they couldn't believe it

    As immaculate as it was I promised here that I'd give it a paint job over the winter. I won't lie, designing a scheme for a fully faired bike is a little out of my usuall remit so I sought I'd seek expert advice.

    There is a thread on here somewhere (I can't bloody find it) by a fine chap called Eugene who does design work, I sent him a photo of the original bike and an idea of what I wanted (ZZR1400 inspired) and he came back to me with a few fantastic drafts. After what seemed like a 100 hour conversation with Karen we decided on the closest basis to what we wanted. I could develop it from there ....

    As a Valentines present to Karen I let her spend the day with me at my workshop so she could strip her bike down ..... I'm a true gent like that!

    First job was the wheels. Pearl green rims faded to black spokes ....

    And back into the bike so it was mobile again ...

    Then it was just a question of about a million paint processes to bring the design (or my version of it) to life ......

    I built it up yesterday and polished all the fingerprints off it. As it was sunny today I rode it up the lane for it's compulsory photo shoot.
    Tomorrow Karen's riding to Brands for the BSB

    Thanks Andi - Chris did a brilliant job I thought I knew what I wanted and he guided me to a finished job way beyond what I could have imagined - actually those pics don't really do it enough justice - i would highly recommend Chris if you want your bike to look great and turn into a one off special

    Sorry Gary, I completely forgot to put up any photos of the paint job on your bike, total oversight on my part which I will remedy immediately!

    There's probably 10-12 hours in those panels.
