thanks guys, No dont work in a paint shop. The local shop done the frame. I painting the rocker cover and the engine. I was originaly going to get the frame done matte black but the black with red sparkle took my fancy when i went into the shop.

Not sure what to do with the wheels though, any ideas?

Nice job, tho you might want to run some emery down the spark plug holes cos you may struggle to get a plug spanner down/out of the hole. Just my opinion. As said NICE.

Looks good so far:thumb: Only thing with white wheels is very very high maintenance, black with white strip would look great !!

I have a dyno print out for mine with a K&N panel filter, dynojet kit and d&d can and 117bhp at the wheel. So deffo worth it. I think it was about 5-7 bhp up right across the rev range.
