Thumbs up Hi!

So, finally took the plunge, just purchased this beauty! 2018 bike with just 385 miles on, presumably someone's weekend toy, fine by me, because that's exactly what ill use it for.
The previous owner obviously spent good money to make it look like this and with such low mileage, that's all good for me!
Paul.

Good stuff. Is the tank just wrapped, or is it a permanent change?!

That plunge was a good decision. That is a great looking bike. You are now an elite member of the WWFF club. But your bike looks proper with the Wrong Way Front Fender. I wouldn't bother flipping it around. Enjoy the ride and keep posting pictures.

Someday, you'll own some Yamahas

SCRBen, proper paint job, although i have seen these tanks in this colour on ebay.
Schu, thankyou, WWFF Club!

Still possibly toying with the idea of creating a copy of the last XT500, gold rims, white tank with black and red decals around the edge, was always my favourite looking bike, in the good old days!
