So got a bit more done. Managed to “mock” the front end up. Flat and polished one of the wings to see what they come up like and got the rear floor storage boxes fixed down. On with prepping the outside now with a plan to paint it tomorrow night after work.

nice! I've got a few bikes.....16 I think at the last count!😂

I don't do the big stuff anymore....vintage road, gravel, whatever that is, and xc long distance stuff
My only full bouncer is a salsa spearfish....its an old one, 2012 , but I love it to bits.

That’s the sides painted. Plenty of clearcoat on so I can flat it back and hopefully get it nice. It’s not a show finish and I’m by no means a painter and don’t have a booth for it to go in but I’m plenty happy with it.
