    Lurker from Northern Ireland

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum.. although my login details from rsvzone seem to work which is convenient! Just finishing off the restoration of my big girl (97 tl1000s-v in red) and thought I would introduce myself and let you see her. Bought for £650 from a friend that no longer wanted it, she was in a bit of a sorry state with cut down fairings, a horrible paint job, badly corroded casings, wheels in poor shape, needing fork seals, some new panels and a definite lick of paint.. few months down the line and i am just waiting for the delivery of my sticker kit and oem indicators. My mirrors aren't shown in the photos as I was so excited to get some photos earlier in the week and hadn't received them yet.

    You could get one of these natty little red numbers from China (they are ok - I've got one on my tiller) to match your paintwork.

    Not sure what you'd do about mounting but this might be useful.

    They aren't HyperPros to be sure but for the money they are fine.
    Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.

    they're in the post as we speak dude! forgot to mention them lol cheers

    I've actually just sent my own design off for prototyping, but if i can pick up a decent tank mount between now and then I will probably just take it to save the agro.. This one should fit the stock damper unit along with the tlr yoke I have fitted...

    Maybe it is a tls yoke then.. I assumed it was an r yoke as the damper mount was integrated into it. I can get the anodising turned off your nice blue one

    No the one like yours is the later release model that's all. As you realise the first one's were bolted on jobbies....

    You could get the blue turned off but a quick rub down, spot of primer and any paint colour you like would be quicker and cheaper me thinks............or even just a rub down and lacquer?
