I'll just say I got a very good deal as he was keen to keep my original system...... ;)

I'll get some piccies up ASAP, the downpipe/engine joint collars are off being chromed at the moment, so as soon as they're back I'll get the pipes back on the bike.

Just looking forward to riding the bike now! Apart from all the bits and pieces I'm doing to her, I also have to pass my test yet as she'll be my first 'big' bike...and for that I'll have to wait until all my university exams are out of the way in May (and it's a bit warmer!).

In the meantime I'll just keep polishing! ;)

Is that 'Armours' ? they weren't very helpful when I asked for some help, as soon as I mentioned Honda they said an abrupt NO!

Hi Malcolm,

Yes, it is Armours. To be honest I expected a 'no' too, and was very surprised when the owner agreed to get one made for me... Hopefully he's now seriously considering moving into the classic Japanese world too. I'll post on this forum if I hear anything positive from him.

Steph.

Thanks Steph, it was for my 175 so I maybe a long way down the list  :)

Being a member of the VMCC I am used to being shunned for having an interest in Japanese machines, the number of older 'British' riders is in decline (dying off), a lot of machines are bought by people as an investment (not used), so organisations (VMCC/Armours) need to find a wider market.
