    Good COVID project was to learn to paint!  Had collected a second set of tins for the Sporty so had no excuse to not start the project.  Had an absolute ball doing the paintwork etc.  Clear-Coated to death so it looks and feels like its under a layer of glass.

    Pondering what to do with the original tins now, so may have another crack at it all.

    Ahhh so this is a pic of the bike that I asked for in another thread. Frikken  awesome paint and bike too. Can’t believe that’s your first go at anything like that. Will be good to see what other ideas you’ve got for your other set of tins

    Yeah, Paint is done and now the Seat and Pipes are the main items to get done.  Really hard to find an upholstery guy in Melbourne but think I'm onto one in Hallum although it will be the new year before he can do the job (mind you I run with Duct tape for 18 months already so a couple more are not going to hurt).  Pipes are about 3/4 done but parked while I did paint, so can be started again.

    No bloody idea about what to do with the old tins to be honest.  Ill have to keep looking around for inspiration.

    This is a photo of one of the forum organizerS Taken on a rEcEnt ride we did Last mOnth. I cannot use his name as I may get capital punishment. Perhaps it will give you some inspiration.

    Interesting paintwork there mate.  Did you do a lot of drugs when you were young?
    If I was you I would contemplate experimenting with black paint on the next project.

    Nope that was not me, but there are many many parties that I cannot remember due to my mate Jack....
    I saw the design of youtube and really liked it as it was 'not black' lol.
    the chap on you-tube had a video of him doing it so I used that as a guide.
    The whole bike is sort of hippie/60s/early 70's feel so the paint slotted in nicely.
