A little rougher than I thought but still a complete bike.
Needs some polishing, new brakes, and a few odds and ends.
Now I just need a name for her....

Congratulations Alex :yo: :yo: :yo:

Now any advice you need on how to push it - you KNOW who to ask :cry:

The alloy on it polishes up super easy - if you have or get a polishing wheel you can bring it up just like chrome - I had to 'dull' some of my bits as I got them too shiny! :laughing:

Rob. I'm becoming pretty good at pushing myself...
When the motocarro gets here I really hope I don't have to ever push that one.
Def needs some polish I'm sure Dorian is going to get real sick of all my parts requests.
I think shes just happy to be in a nice dry climate and out of the barn.

Dave. There is nothing better than a dog that looks like an ewok. Maybe I can strap some harnesses on them and have them pull me next time I break down.

Nice! I've always liked the 350 Twins but those side panels just don't do it for me.

Well done Alex, she look fine.

Now if you lot would just come around to my way of thinking and STOP POLISHING everything. Patina is the new chrome don't you know:)

That's a lovely Ipotesi, Gunnar!

By the way, just got back from the local MV dealer, had a chat there about the MV motocarro and other 3 wheeled stuff.
According to him, if you don't go through a bend on 2 tyres only, you're not trying hard enough :)

Oh come Dorian, some of us don't own enough bikes to STOP polishing everything :laughing:

Seriously though, too shiny doesn't look right but that's easy fixed just leave it, eventually it dulls to the right level and it doesn't even take THAT long ;)
