The mount has been machined and drilled, so I can finally fit the Triumph T100 mudguard to the bike. Still need to polish it, but looks ok..

Having sorted out the front mudguard, I turned my attention to the back of the bike, and its rear light. Had to make a new bracket to reuse the light originally fitted to the SS900 seat unit that I decided it didn't suite the bike. That done, I then machined 2mm from the thickness of the alloy light cover, which lost a surprising amount of weight. 

Recently found a local painter with a good rep, so got the bodywork booked in for a new paintjob in a couple of weeks. So now I'm going to have to finally pick a colour scheme. Current favourite (which will no doubt change) is to go for red with white graphics. 

Played about with some pinstriping tape, trying out different ideas. In the pic below, the shapes outlined will be white, everything else will be red.
