Hey guys just finished the X7 project and typically want to go in a maiden voyage and the roads are crap ! All I need now is the engine case decals to finally finish her off so if anyone has spare ones for sale pm me by all means here’s a pic and a vid of her running this morning I’ve given it 6 heat cycles so just want a short road test sometime 😀 can’t send a vid on here for some reason could someone advise me how ?
Please do come round and I'll have a go on it! With regards to the engine decals, have you tried/spoken to the image works? They can reproduce most things.
yes Gary I’ve got them coming from the image works already but I’d prefer the real thing I got all the other decals from them as I painted everything myself . First time I’ve done anything as big but I’m well pleased with the result
Pete, ive just had a word with the other lads and we've decided to deduct just one point off this resto. For posting in the wrong section, that's all. Naughty lad!
lol I posted via Tapatalk loading piccies that way, as being a novice poster I don’t know how to post any other way fromMy phone, and don’t know how to do it from my PC with piccies and couldn’t find the restoration page on my app. So my apologies guys for my terrible faux pas smacked are accepted😂😂😂
The side panel decals are mk2 I think and the tank mk1 what happened there pal?
like I’ve explained guys this is mister novice here I ordered what I thought was correct giving the bike’s year etc and that is what I got? But as it’s a working and usable bike I’m happy with what in I’ve achieved i wasn’t going for concours standard. The other aspect is concours is in my opinion is prohibitive as the end result generally greatly exceeds the actual value of the bike. It’s ok for the rich guys to do lol . I suppose I could very easily redo the side panels correctly as I’ve got another set I can do, thanks for the observation russ
It was just a wee go round the block I was after mate. I don't ride anymore. Since having two new knees, it just doesn't seem the right thing to do anymore, if that makes sense, but cheers for the offer.
I bought mine brand new in 1979 in white exactly as this one is but only had it a month before I wrapped it and me around two trees resulting in a very poorly bike and even more poorly Peter with a broken leg collar bone ribs and a cracked neck 360 miles only done. Cost me £740 new then
