    Nevermind the bike your slabs are immaculate, any chance you can come and sort mine out. Mine are manky, cracked and weeds poking through

    Lol, it's an OCD thing. When we are not restoring old Brit bikes we work on the bungalow :)

    That really does make a difference, very nice.

    Are those YSS shocks as well?

    Yes they are, the first thing i changed as the standard rear shocks are very basic.

    Looking good :p

    Links for seat and shocks could be of benefit to others to carry out these very sensible and no doubt worthwhile mods?

    I'm considering changing my Thruxton S shocks and was looking at Bitubos, any reason you went with YSS?

    I have used them in the past and like the look of them plus YSS have a connection with Ohlins as the company was set up by ex employees.

    Lovely that mate.
    The reason i sold my bonnie was the seat, it was absolute torture for me, shame as i really like the bike.
    I'm in comfort heaven with my tiger now though.

    Seat you can get from Hanse Qustom in Germany, [email protected] and shocks from that good old evil bay. My shocks are RZ362-370TRL-02-X as i wanted a 10mm shorter shock.

    Only £600.00 :joy::joy::joy: bit of a joke rely, the problem was i has seen the seat before i bought the bike not knowing the cost and it's taken me three months to pluck up the courage to dump that sort of dosh into it.

    That's an expensive seat, but if it means you can ride all day then what the hell, plus it makes a really big difference to the look.
