This is how the bike looked before someone tried to nick it.... :(

List of parts that have arrived for repair:

Foot peg, new chain, new bar ends, 2 new mirrors, new front fairing (still waiting on this), screen bolt kit, new ignition seat lock and petrol cap, new top yoke.

Also bought myself a tail tidy and a black powerbronze screen to finish it off. SHould be ready to go into the garage at the turn of the year and hopefully be riding her again mid january at the latest, its been too long (3 months and counting).

eBay mate, company called Perfect Fairings. Haven't been able to offer it up to the bike to see if it fits yet so fingers crossed.
So the fairing didn't fit in the end :S

On the bright side i got another one for £25. All be it, damaged but i'm in the process of repairing it.....

First bit after the first weld.

Now after having sanded it down, i realised it needed some more plastic. Getting late now so i'll have to wait till tomorrow to sand it down again.

Bottom bit half way welded....

I've decided to take it slow, doing it small bit by small bit, and making sure there is enough plastic there so it won't snap.

Cheers lads....

Was a bit apprehensive about doing it myself but its going to be black with a black screen so hopefully if there are any imperfections it will be unnoticeable.
