PostSubject: Saved from the scrap heap!   Mon Apr 27, 2015 6:54 pm

I had lots of spare parts for a VAM motor bike and decided rather than scarp them i would try to make something out off all the bits. I managed to get a pretty nice finish on the bike after spraying but as you will tell there are a couple of bits short that i may well get one day.

THe exhaust is missing along with a couple panniers. The handle bars were also broken and i managed to make up one arm of the bars with some plastic i had lying about. I was also a handle grip missing and maanged to make something up that came out much better than i expected.

See what you think.
