Beautiful job Chris, I hope you get some sunny days to enjoy the result.
Breaking news, it's pouring down in the Alpujarra.

Nice looking bike Chris, I hope you get some time on it soon. I just read through this thread for the first time and was horrified about your sand problems. I'm planning to take some engine cases up to be blasted soon and am already worried about any residual beads which may lurk.


Funnily enough I just got an update about "windy Donny" today from an Uncle who is in Warmsworth. I also saw you posted a while back that there are no model shops around you any more. Makes me sad to think the one on Duke Street has gone then... used to press my nose against their window a lot on the '70's

The sand in my engine was because some cretin blasted it while it was built up with no exhausts or carbs on
They probably had bought a LIDL sand blaster for £20 and wanted to try it out

It seems a long way back to the collection of bits and pieces that I set out with

Nice! TongueBig smile

I like the red respray. My V50II could do with one like that. Is there an "official" color for MG red for LM MkII's, Monza's etc?

I think you will find it's the same red.

Check through this list.

Unfortunately I couldn`t find the original paint code and I didn`t have a sample for analysis as the bike was previously blue, so I sent my son down to Halfords to buy some different aerosol reds for comparison. Basic I know but the number of reds out there is astronomic and `seeing is appreciating` so he did some test panels for me which is how we ended up with AUDI Brilliant Red. Granted its not original but of the 3 V50s I've done so far this one is very close to my ideal colour and I can always buy a correct touch up for future mishaps. If I could get hold of an original panel in factory red then most paint suppliers, these days, can scan it for colour matching in a modern paint.
Funnily enough the blue is the colour I didn`t like but the new owner of my original V50/3 resprayed it that colour and it looks gorgeous

I used VW Tornado red for my V50 which is a bit less "orangey" than most of the Guzzis I've seen.

Yes my first one was a bit orangey and the AUDI colour is close to your VW colour. Still a nice looking bike you`ve got there however I`m just glad to reach the running stage or will be once DVLA have completed their checks

I needed red paint for my Cardellino which I'm really not interested in. I went into The Paint Warehouse in Bristol and just asked for a litre of bright red paint. The young bloke grunted and disappeared through a back door. He came back 2 seconds later and plonked a tin of some shade of Vauxhall red on the counter. It turns out to be exactly the right shade! I think all Guzzi reds are the same? In which case, start with VauxhallšŸ¤”
