    Its taken a while but Lockdown allowed me the opportunity to get get the last few jobs done namely: get my tank dent fixed and repainted.
    One of my good mates took the tank and pushed out the dent as best he could, which showed up another problem: the badge screw inserts were rusted and one had popped a weld.

    So decided to weld up all the inserts to stop further corrosion and then fill and paint (the original colour-Cinder Red) and also move to a set of badges that stick on, (Triumph Four bar ones), once the locating pin is cut off.
    Yesterday I put the knee and top pads on, so the T120 is looking a lot better than when I bought it.

    Great job, wishbone! Tanks are always a tough job.

    Hopefully, the weather gods will smile on us soon and allow us to get out and enjoy our rides.
