the 'zed at mfn custom and classic show, sunday.
barse recently dug out some old photo's and this one is from a motorcycle action group protest run held in nottingham, i reckon from the late 80's or very early 90's looking at the bikes, the black honda cb750's was a bike i built back then, i got a pair of fat-bob tanks and spaced them really wide on the top tube, the tank in-fill was made by me and louvered by johnny bagazzi, the seat unit is a cut-down z650 item, i even used closed cell neoprene as a seat cover to give it that 'racer' look, a theme i have carried through a number of bikes and scooters, the front mudguard is an rg500 item, another thing that i've used before and still have one on my sporty, happy days, there were so many bikes on the demo run that we blocked nottingham town centre off and we actually had time to stop and buy a kettle because we had forgotten to pack one for the rally at park barn farm at donington where we camped before the demo.
