Here's the latest pic of the Brat Style build... got the colouring pencils out and applied some white walls.

Man that paint is a bitch to work with and get the edges right. Going to do the front wheel too, but probably a thinner stripe.

Since taking this pic I've moved the instruments forward and down so they sit just above the headlight and don't stick out like dog's balls so much....

Hope Deus don't take offence at the logo I've ripped off! Just a mock up at this stage... but I like it.

Will keep an eye out for those lawyers! What a Face

Brett - bar end mirrors are off trademe - seller was VGB. Tail light is also trademe seller is Leo98 and it is described as "a classic tail light unit"... gotta make you own mount for it though. IrishJon had one as well, but I think his one broke.

Cheers Mike - I have two tins of white wall paint I imported from Iceland from a manufacturer. Cost about $100 to my door. If you want some you can have some of mine. I have used about half a tin on the rear wheel... which has now had three coats. It's recommended to let it dry for 24 hours between coats. The first coat looks like crap, but by the time you get up to the third coat it's looking pretty good. Very Happy
