well a decision was made last night that the DR frame was going to be powered coated, a good mate of mine mate has just started a powered coating firm and was look for work and as a favour "£30 to you what colour would you like" the only bit that has not been stripped serviced and cleaned now is the engine.

My mate has gone a little OTT as he has been enjoying doing some real mechanics as he called it and now his dad has left us has put his energies into the little DR, only problem my be it will be to nice to take off road :pinch: my mate just started to laugh when I asked him

cheers Spud ;)

Should look and go quite well when I get it back, I cant see how £30 will cover the cost of the paint :whistle: but the guy wants to get his name out (thumbs)

I just hoping my mate doesn't suddenly take fancy and recons the engine while he is at it as I would like to ride it this year at some point.

cheers Spud ;)
