Red face Got bored, repainted SV by hand with a paint brush

With out sounding like I am on a downer, I have been rather poorly of late and have really struggled to get my bike out. So what do you do when you want to ride your bike, buy are unable to do so? You paint your bike...

As standard it looks like this.

But with the aid of a screwdriver and a bit of experimentation, it can look like this.

You will of course notice that there are some slight differences. Beowulf and can, Yamaha R1 USD forks, blue spot brakes and a carbon guard. Strangely this is what Sylvie will be wearing soon! I also took some pin files to various parts of the bike and made them look more authentic. The badly modelled oil cooler always annoyed me, now it is with in keeping of the real Sylvie.

This is the R1 donor bike from which I tool the forks, brakes and wheel. I am now sure that the future holds for this little bike, but I may build a street fighter out of it now, especially given that the fairing has been pulled off. It does look good as a naked, but it will have to have an old SV front end.

Some come on folks, your turn next. Show us them models.

Nice work. Sadly, I don't think they did a curvy.
