How much did you spend to bring back the beauty to life.
Thanks guys.

I wouldn't really want to quote the amount I spent on the bike (mostly because I have lost count over the last 3 years of collecting spares) but it was time that I invested most in this.

Please do not comment no the bike's number. "I KNOW"
Number...its all in the game!!!
With Leg shield , she looks great!!
How do you felt the " Aerodynamics", while riding, with & without LS??

On my opinion, this Teflon coating, just reduces the shade changing issues, by cutting down the ultraviolet rays, but as a scratch proof material it does very very little or nothing.

This is one hell of a restoration, great job. The bike also is unique with the leg shields, which i have seen it for the first time.

Manish: Thanks Mate.

PowerTwin and Glomus: Riding at 70 to 80 kmph, I dont think aerodymics would make a significant difference with these bikes. Anyways, because the shield is so big and not in the least bit aerodynamic in the positive sense, it vibrates. This is carried down to the footpegs where it is bolted on to. It is not very annoying though, as it happens only at certain RPMs. Also this sheild does give a sense of security to the legs and it has the feeling of being on a scooter. Apart from all this, every second person does stop to ask questions or give it a long stare

Of course it gives a lot of protection. The vibrations at certain RPMs can be stopped by some packing, I hope so. Congratulations once again!!
