The numberplate holder blends in really well, did you fab that up?
Also the rear light gives a nice clean and simply style, good choice.

Thanks, I wish I had the skills to do that, it is made by Unit Garage. I probably spent 3 months deciding on what tail tidy to get. Ideally I would have got someone to fabricate one but went with this option as thought it’d be cheaper and meets 90% of my requirements. However it was £245 which I think is a little overpriced and I had to drill it to fit the light.
I’ve always really like the Bates style and think it helps tie the headlight in too

This bike has really come together now - I love it, and whilst I was initially unsure about the seat colour i know think it was a touch of genius! Great work :)
Thanks for the kind words. In the shop the blue was much darker, I almost got the guy to recover the seat in black after I had it done but it’s grown on me now.
This is it for cosmetics for a while I think. I do have the flapper delete to install but need to buy a torque wrench!

Very well done, all the pieces period match, particularly like the rear lamp.

The cheapest mod so far...you all probably know the Pure (I think all except the Classic) come with plastic bar end “weights”. I can feel vibration through the handlebars when riding, it’s not painful as such but is noticeable. I prefer narrow bars and didn’t want to pay a fortune so instead of getting the OEM version or aftermarket type I ordered some M12 button head bolts to trial as bar end weights. They’re 60g each so not sure if it’ll make much difference but were only £8.25 for five...

Replaced the Akrapovic for the discontinued Pro Race RC-150, I was lucky to get it from a fellow forum member...
