Hi all,
Im currently not a licensed bike rider but I'm looking to remedy that before my project xj600 is ready for the road, I've been the sole driver in my family until my better half recently passed her driving test, so, what better time for me to go and get my bike license for some weekend fun

Metallic black and british racing green you say?

Bet that'll look lovely, and definitely worthy of a project thread!

Yea, im also painting calipers imola red and getting some red braided hoses and levers for it, im unsure at the minute what colour to go for on the wheels, im after a bit of contrast because the bike will mostly be dark colours so I'm thinking something like a satin gold
