Looks in pretty good shape to me for a 96 model.
Having said that, I'm always looking for little things
to do on mine lol. Keep us updated with your progress.
Cheers.

Looks in pretty good nick for one of the earliest ones.
Good luck with any transformation(s)

Can't help but notice the wrinkly seat though. How did that happen ?!?

hi guys the wrinkly seat is from the strap my son used to transport the bike from Portsmouth here to sunny Sunderland in his works van bless him. wrinkles now gone thankfully will post more pics when I do stuff to it. I have some neons in the shed which might get used.

Nice looking cat you got there, saying that most of em look the part, even Rosco's  Laughing 

best of luck with the resto/mod/paint/ whatever it is that needs or you want to do. Like others said if you look hard enough you'll always find something to do on a bike, that's why I ended up buying a project, stops me taking mine a step too far after getting her (in my eyes) perfect!!

Have found the neons am thinking of lighting up the engine with them am thinking of doing the bodywork tank etc in high gloss black and the hugger chain guard etc in satin and the dashboard surround in carbon wrap and all the decals in matt black with electric blue accents on calipers etc just see where it all takes me. i will do all this on a budget as usual as the wife hates me spending money so cans of paint from pound shop will do a very good job its the preparation that counts i believe. any thought guys ????
