Even contemplated buying each panel new from honda but i know wot would happen . would get to last panel and find it was discontinued Thumb Down

Who'd restore a HOnda ? Laugh

have you had a look at these mate for graphics?
http://www.bike-stickers.com/homepage.htm


I think I've been through everyone on the whole internet !

Problem is most graphics companies will do the individual wording ( ie) Fireblade, CBR, etc etc.

But, the side graphics - mid panel and up are graphic not paint

index.php/fa/17598/0/

I contacted Graham @ the image works again today and he confirmed they can do the complete set, he said bronze was not 100% match and has agreed to send me a sample of both bronze and silver so I can check against panels I've got.

He then put a spanner in works by saying they can do the red/white/blue scheme ( which was the original scheme on this bike 100% colour match ! Hmmmmmm.

Prices are £120.00 for the complete set or £150.00 quid fitted, whilst £120.00 aint cheep I was amazed they would fit a whole bike for £30.00 !

SPal


£120 is a lot better than the £720 + I was quoted by Hunts Honda for the Red/White/Blue for my Blade

n't colour match that bit. Has that changed?Hi adamsdad,

Do you mean the panel each side (top fairing) same colour as tank top?

If so, Graham didn't mention it, on my bike that section would be bronze and he only said top of tank (bronze) and section of lower panels (where holes are) silver.

If it does need painting its not a big deal as he's sending my sections of both bronze & silver to colour match.

I got him to send the blue of the R/W/B scheme as well as he said this scheme was 100% match for OEM.

think i'd far rather end up with a second choice scheme that was 100% than my first choice that wasn't quite there !

When I get the colour swatches through I'll give him a call and let u know.

Hi bud, yeah, thats the bit. Like you say, I'd just get it painted when the tank got sprayed anyway. I want to put mine back to the R/W/B as this is the original colour (I know this from the sticker under the seat and I've actually seen a pic of m

Carbon fibre change guard front & rear sections. if truth be told I didn't buy them for this bike, I was going to put them on the SP1, but, and I still cant believe i did this : forgot my SP already has a carbon hugger which incorporates a chain guard.

So, fit the front guard to the SP and have a rear kicking about? didn't seam very sensible.

Really like the look of the carbon on the blade, not original, but I don't think out of place!

I've got a few aftermarket bits on the blade such as carbon frame protectors, haris screen brace, maxton clip ons, so this stuff shouldn't look over the top.

Am going to fit a carbon fibre front sprocket cover ( from the same company that did this stuff in Germany) and am considering a carbon front mudguard ( but must be original style, not the wrap around style fitted to the later blades.

Getting really fed up saying this but will be calling bike shop tommorrow to arrange to pck up the cylinder head - better be finished !!!! hope I've got enough cash left 2 pay for it!

SPal



Agree on the head needing to be ready otherwise its going to be well past the taking the piss stage and into new territory Neutral

Think the cf chain guard looks pretty good. I got myself a CF hugger a few months back (not tested yet RollEyes ) and think it looks the part although did have reservations about fitting it as unlike yourself I rarely ride on shit strewn roads and quite like the naked rear wheel/swingarm look.

Tp me when CF is used in addition to existing parts that it kind of defeats th

e purpose of having it eg yoke covers but I allow some exceptions to this rule [of mine] like when its used as a protective measure such as frame or engine casing guards smileHI kermit,

Feel its only fair to point out that is not a case of me calling shop every day to chase head !

Due to various reasons : The orrible cold weather, lack of interest but mainly cash flow have been quite happy for it, not to have been done !

Also, I can remember from working in motor trade, there was nothing worse than a customer that wasn't really bothered how long a job took as you always scheduled your workload on a priority basis so a low priority job could quiet often take a rediculous ammount of time ( when you looked back.

So I can appriciate it from the repaireres perspective as well, but I now need to get on with it - even if its just to stop me starting playing with other bikes Laugh

Don't want to over do the bling and trying just to fit stuff that could have been fitted in one form or another in early 90's.
