Great work on the rear brakes, wow  :thumleft:

I follow a guy on YouTube called  "Cameron Niemela" and find his videos very informative. He's a little redneck by his own admission but is very humble and down to earth and somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to cleaning. At 13 years old he started his own 2nd hand motorcycle parts company called www.revivemoto.com and has been very successful with it. Check him out when you get a chance  :thumleft:
Present bikes: BETA 300RR, KTM 690, Yamaha WR250F

Looking good Kobus. Sure you mentioned it before, but did you buy one of the plating kits available, or did you create your own system?

2008 Aprilia Pegaso Trail (Sold)

Done for now.  Not pretty, but functional for now.

Will certainly change a couple of things if I ever do it again.

Ek hou nogal van die gun mount, maar gaan die skud nie die scope kan seermaak nie? Ek dink wel jou staalwerk om die ding vas te hou is baie smart (in my opinie anyway).

Gaan jy nog n krat agterop ook vassit en sal die sitplek n lam dwarsoor kan dra?

Hy is eintlik gebou vir n open sight pellet gun, maar met die 10mm foam voel hy baie skok bestand so ek is seker die scope sal ok wees.  Die rek wat hom af trek is ook redelik vergewend.

Daar kom nog iets agter op vir n draad tang, koffie fles ens.  :biggrin:

Jy sal vir seker sommer n 2 tand skaap oor die seat kan gooi.  :lol8:

Trek die sitplek oor met daai skaapvel.... sal dan mooi by die "image" van die quad pas  :pot:

Soos al jou ander werk lyk dit baie netjies  :thumleft:

Kobus, jy het wragtig voorsiening vir alles gemaak.

Went to view a house the other day and like usual, the first thing I do is look at the garage.

This was standing there in 100% original condition.
