The subject of this group build is to take a model off your shelf that's been sitting there unfinished and finish it.
To start post photos of your model(s) in it's current state with a quick blurb of what version you were building and why it ended up abandoned. Then blog and post photos of you finishing it!
Extra kudos the older it is.

I've just remembered that I have this kit stuffed away in the back of a cupboard somewhere. It was retired to the shelf of doom after I effed up the metal paint on the frame work multiple times when I first started out using Alclad. It's a miracle it didn't end up in the bin where many kits have gone before.

That silver finish will be interesting to replicate. Nice to see a bike being built.

Nice kit.
Will have to pop in and follow your progress.
Last time I built a bike was probably 35 years ago, could get inspired after watching here :unsure:

I built this a while back, it goes together great from what I remember. I used the clear cowl on one side and was pleased with the look.
