    I wish I had a dad to do that with. My dad hated offroading.
    Cheers T.R, its still got a bit to go yet mate but with the old boys help it'll get there. Them LED lights are the goods arent they.

    My bolt kit arrived today and im stoked with it. About the only thing i can see not included in this kit is the swingarm pivot bolt. This is the attention to detail that should set it off when all together.





    Heres where i got it.

    US$150 Delivered. He did me a good deal out side of ebay.
    I went and picked up the frame and tank from being sandblasted the other day and took them straight to the painters. Not much to paint really because everything else has gone to the chromers or is going to be polished.





    The chromer said all my parts will be ready in about a week, i said dont rush and take a fortnight as my swinger and new front end will be about that long anyway. Im going to the painters Monday aswell to give him the paint codes.
    There the codes from the new Yamaha dirtbikes. Thats what colour im going with.
    Plastic Colour:
    Deep Purplish Blue Solid E
    Factory Code: 0583
    Bike-Paint top: 5829
    Paint- base: None
    (DPBSE)

    Frame colour:
    Deep Purplish Blue Metallic C (Cocktail)
    Factory Code: 0564
    Paint-top: 5815
    Base: None
    (DPBMC)

    I found that info at http://www.bike-paint.co.uk/Yamaha.htm

    After going to the spraypainters and talking with him ive found the yamaha codes dont match anything he had in his data base so the other day i went looking in car yards for a blue for my frame that will go with my new plastics aswell. I took my headlight shell and camera with me and the closest colour/most appealing that i could find was on a Mitsubishi Outlander. Funny thing is that i didnt find the car in a car yard, i found it parked out the back of someones work and here i am all over it with a headlight shell taking pics of it.

    Its called Electric Blue Pearl (code T70)













    Should be picking my parts up from the chromers this Friday too so i'll post more pics then

    Cheers guys!

    I got the headlight shell in a complete set of Blue fanders i bought off a member here... RID3R. If you have a look on the previous pages it shows them. Im surprised no one else bought them actually. He had them advertised everywhere for a while before i bought them.

    I just got an email from the guy in the states whos building my swinger... he attached pics too. Its close to done but we may make a few slight adjustments. I asked him to add another upright support between the 2 that are there. 1 on each side and we may be working a way to do away with the top brake stay. Then its off to chrome!
