    restoration questions

    now that I have 2 XV920Rs in my possession, I am going to start work on restoration, my "parts" bike I just bought turned out to be better than my project bike and I can easily restore one to completely original and restore the other to a "modified from stock" condition

    the only paint scheme that came to the us looked like thishttp://birdog.602.cc/Birdog-jpg/tr1-jpg/tr1-l.jpg but I really don't like that color, I'd rather have something that is more like this http://hem.passagen.se/xv750xv1000/t.../xmy_tr1_1.jpg, Brittish racing green, or TLS green like Josh's TLS is the color I was considering.


    the other one will end up looking like thishttp://hem.passagen.se/xv750xv1000/t...epp_1200_7.jpg or this http://hem.passagen.se/xv750xv1000/bilder/Image7.jpg or similar.

    opinions?

    That one worked, but the pic is a little dark, kind of hard to see the bike.

    Which one are ya gonna do first, restoration on the original or the "modified".

    restoration questions

    The original, cause that'll be easier, all I have to do is swap a couple parts & paint, the modified one will require scrounging a few parts and some fabrication, and more importantly, more thought as to what I want it to look like. the first four links didn't take you right to photos, they do for me.

    The first link worked, showing me the "only color to come to the US" and then the link you just posted with the pilot girl. The other links bring me to the same site, no pic, just some Sweedish.

    Maybe they knew I am French/Canadian and won't let me in!
