Darn right lovely pics -

Few years back I wiped out with my Anniversary and it suffered some damage - do not wish to do a total restoration as your self due to garage space but must say it is inspiring - please post more pics

Are you running a 150 rear tire? Do you happen to have a spare parts source - I am looking for the plastic piece holding the toolkit/rear lamp/license plate etc etc as well as original foot pegs and mounts.

That looks great Joep-it's made me even more determined to finish mine.
I broke a cambelt 4 years ago at Almeria-stripped the motor, put a Nordwest barrel and piston in, RC600 valves in the original Saturno head with a gasflowed inlet. I am just starting to put the motor back together again and like yours mine is going to be a track bike. I love the header pipes you had made-are they available or a one off? You also mentioned a change of cams-are performance cams available?-I have been trying to track some of those down for the last 4 years.

Last time out mine looked like this
