    So you are telling me your bike is running the old engine covers that have simply been repainted??

    Thats right. The engine casing/cover is old one, just repainted. As I said, except the spares listed everything else is old.

    EDIT: Came back from a 15km ride. Feels tad rough because of decarbonizing. Handle bar position needs to be adjusted. In the stock setting one has to reach for it. Gives me back pain. Will get it tilted inside when I am free.

    Few more pics

    All spokes are new. Yes, got the rim aligned. No wobbles running fine. Only problem I face is the handle bar position. Needs to be tilted in a little. Otherwise running fine as it always did

    superb job mate. just wanted to know, is the paint color couple of shades brighter than the ones that where sold?

    personally, just wondering if it would make sense to add the left rear view mirror.

    brilliant job though. congrats.

    Correct. Good observation It is indeed couple of shades darker. Must admit, I haven't been very diligent in getting this job done. Didn't trouble myself searching for the colour codes/etc.

    Not very keen on the left RVM.

    Thanks for the kind words

    the bike looks like Cameron Diaz beautiful
    A good long ride can clear your mind, restore your faith, and use up a lot of fuel.

    Always be ready (get geared) to fall and then think of sitting on the motorcycle.
