.

I think thats why I like DC plastics so much, they do heaps more Kms than NOS stuff, much better value.


I use DC plastics on some  of my bikes  (  & I ride these bikes too)
  Not perfect,  but the  plastics  fit OK on my bikes  & do the job   :) ........     ( the blue brigade will never believe it) ;D

Meh, I have DC on several of my ITs and apart from poor fit and lack of definition, they cover the holes where originals went.

I agree with Brian. Much better value, but they would be nicer if they fitted better.

  Reassembly begins
  The plastics are  reasonable on this bike  (L/H rad shroud a bit rough, but will do for now)
  Replaced missing rear shock flap / protector with DC item  .( Fits nicely )  ;D

That has come up nice Steve 8). Give us a run down on what you did - that's a good result in a short time!

 Hi Adam,
     the bike has cleaned up well  ,neat enough  , but nothing too immaculate .
 A restoration / refurbishment of sort I suppose  but certainly not to the standard / level of the beauties that  come out of your shed . I  certainly admire your patience & attention to detail  . 8)
    This bike  was never intended to be a concourse machine ,    but nonetheless a strip down a check over was in order , replacing what was needed  around the bike , painting the frame , fork re chrome , chains , sprockets ,etc.
 A few little   bits around the bike  still need to be finished  (lights , hand guards, bash plate ) but looking OK so far.
 
 Front headlight is not correct for this model , but will do for now.
A good used genuine front guard was found to replace the badly faded & split fr guard . All the other plastic appears to be original & cleaned up OK . Could probably polish up a bit more , but for me that's time better spent  making a bash plate . 
 A couple of closer up pictures  show that this bike is no showroom resto. but I like to ride them,  so  the intention was always to put together  a neat &  tidy rider.

 Regards ,
               Steve

I wouldn't call my resto's concourse, I don't have that much patience or money!

I really like how that has turned out, and even with the money it owes you it is still the bargain of the year!! And you have a really neat reliable bike you can ride and enjoy.

OMG all that work looks great but im sorry to tell you..... you have put the kick starter on the wrong side. Maybe you can use all those left over parts in the  photo to fix that.

 Hi Mike ,

 That is not the lower shock bearing  you see on the bench  ( it was OK )
 
Spherical bearing is from horizontal link ; as  located in pic below.  (have Info on this one if you need)

                Steve
