My R1200S project so far

Postby scottie58 » Wed Mar 22, 2017 7:50 pm

I have created a blog on what I am up to regards rebuilding my previously yellow R12 - much easier for me than posting pics on the forum!

I hope you enjoy it and find it interesting

Looking good. I did my downpipes and as you've learned - a couple of minutes running and they're back to brown. I have a spare set of panels for mine and I'm considering a paint job when funds permit. Just had the rocker covers powder coated black - looks good. I'll have to learn to post pics!!!!!

I enjoyed reading your blog Scottie and looking forward to the finished article :D just one thing you haven't said when I can bring my 12 round for a good tidy up :wink:

perhaps we could meet up when it's done, nothing like a brace of R1200s 8)

pipes hopefully will go a tasteful blue fading into yellow :D

Popsky - my rates are not too bad!

Would be good to meet up and go for a hoon over Exmoor into Devon - will let you know when I am finished.

thanks for the positive comments, will definitely include some wider shots when all the panels are fitted.

Will put new black R1200S stickers on tail unit, then "live with it" for a while to decide if it needs any more graphics adding.

less is more!

Exmoor Pink down here!

Blog updated - got all bodywork on today after a bit of soldering, then wheeled her outside for a looksie.

Very pleased with the results :D
