    Restored from two old and wrecked bikes. Really enjoyed doing it.

    Wow, that's a really beautiful looking bike. Inspiring but you've really set the bar high.

    Also your chrome parts look awesome. Did you get things re-plated?

      Hi, yes got the headers rechromed and bought new gauge surrounds.

    I'm curious to know what paint schemes you got in Australia with the 650?
    In Canada we got silver bikes with non-YICS motors or the red like yours with YICS motors.

      We only ever got non YICS models, I think they were available in blue silver and red. My side cover badges are Seca 650 which are not correct, I just couldn’t find the 650 only badges.

    How’d you manage to make the exhaust look new when the header pipes were rusty off the original bike? Beautiful work
