How did you mount the mesh to the radiator?

This used to be used on Toorak Tractors in the 1980's & 90's. It gave you the look without the effort, or risk of damage

,Just finished a three day ride in the QLD NSW outback. Dry as a dead dingo's  donga virtually no rivers or creeks  flowing. Had to clean visor at every stop due to bug guts. If there is a market I can package and ship. If there is a market for dead Roo's we passed hundreds on the roadside, luckily didn't encounter any suicidal live ones.

There are also glue-on soft tissue chunks from select mammals, including marsupials and humans. Impress your friends; baffle authorities! Send dead dingos' dry dongas to Amazon for use as packing material. It's paid as piece-work. Payment varies.

Almost! I was away for an overnighter to Oban on the West Coast of Scotland with the "On yer Bike" group that I went to the Isle of Sky with in May this year. It rained the whole trip, that combined with greasy roads and fallen leaves made for a challenging ride through the difficult twisty Scottish roads. There were only a few big moments, a couple 90 degree slides and Steve on the GS had a brush with a Deer, visibility sucked but overall it was still a great laugh and the beer in the hotel was cold. A good 460 miles covered all in.

I did a quintuple take. :-) Even at that, the subject doesn't hold a candle to David's Revive but it is surprising to see it sold as wall art. I guess the 'tweens have more disposable allowance these days. :-)

You’re very welcome, Laitch.

Had to do a double take when I saw this Dave.  :johnny

Close, but no cigar! Thanking you for the kind words. :D

I sold my house and moved out over the weekend. This is the final photo of Revive, at least in this chapter, where it all began. You CAN build a K100 in a 3x3 meter space.

Actually I think its the one that Dave posted up as inspiration at the beginning.

Unlike the subject in the wall art, Sir Ulrich—Dj's inspiration—doesn't have bar end indicators, fork boots, an LED headlight, bright triple trees, dark mirror housings, stock switch gear, stock front brake master cylinder, or a thin, flared seat.

No cigar. :-) DJ's is as stylish but more practical than either.
