Coming together indeed.

Pity about the time off. I have just been asked to stay back as most people are flooded in. Not sure why my work hasn't closed yet, people need milk I guess.

SES were talking about power and phones being out on the islands. Hope the MIL is alright mate.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Just a quick update. Bars contact tank at switches so I will have to order a set with a slightly higher rise.

Thinking I might need to trim the seat pan at the rear to get the shape I want out of it.

As for colour, I am thinking either gloss black with gold trim or "triumph thruxton" green with yellow trim. What is everyone's opinion as I can't decide.

Irritating, ain't it?

I'd go with flat-black and maybe red-wheels if you absolutely MUST add a colour to the bike ;-)

I feel like Matt black 80s/90s cruiser is seriously over done.

Maybe a nice satin black with metallic accents/stripes.

I did a paint job on the max last year that was matt black with gloss black stripes, would have looked great except for the masking tape buggering up the gloss bits

may revisit that one soon

did you get much water inundation after the rains?

That would have been nice. Had not thought of that.

No water issues in my area, still raining on and off though.

Ha yeah they need to change the name of that place is the water hangs around.

I sold my ts185 yesterday so I should be able to buy 2 tm38s for this old girl.
