Clean as your clean things always are!

I notice the parts spread out on what looks like Pickfords removals blankets . We used some for years as dog basket blankets....they lasted well...must get some more.

Did you paint the front disc guard as I don't think white was a standard colour?

Which model mirrors are you using on your bikes and do the arms swivel inwards?

I work on trucks, between fixing bikes up... whenever I get a removal wagon in I try to blag a few blankets.. slywink:

Yes the disc guard is painted :nod:

The mirrors... Ten 1 has got the original mirrors that were on when I bought it, Ten 3 has got Triumph Scrambler ones that I picked up at an autojumble & the rest are new Tenere mirrors, and those ones do fold inwards....

MMM that might yet be the answer to my lack of a yellow disc guard. I just assumed that being plastic that paint would flake off. Need to get a good etch primer on it I guess.

Will check out the new Tenere mirrors methinks.

Cheers
