A picture of her finished after a rebuild and just put some Gold renthal's on to match the shocks.
Sadly it's in Corona virus lock down now so can't ride it, Gutted!

Hi, really nice looking bike. Is that a solid color with just the lights above reflecting off the paint? Feel free to post more pictures. Are you in an area where you are not allowed to be out at all? because it seems like motorcycling is the most self distancing thing you could do. -Dan

Thanks Dan,
Have a look on the on going project board for a load of pics of it from start to finish. The paint is Candy metallic which looks almost black but when the light hits It turns metallic blue, looks amazing in sunlight.
As regards Corona riding, it is tempting to go out on the empty roads, but the police are taking a very dim view on anyone messing about on their bike and potentially crashing etc and causing the already over stretched NHS any more work.
I'll put some more pics up when I finally get out on it... Who knows when that's going to be!!

Cheers eddie

Cheers guys,
I am over the moon with how it turned out and would love to take it out for a blast, but to be honest with the way things are i can't justify the expense of putting it on the road, I'm still on "furlough" and no guarantee of a job at the end of it, plus to get the Zephyr literally on the road as I live in a terrace house with no side or back access, it involves getting the bike from the back shed through the house!... No mean feat i can tell you, and not something I want to do regularly So sadly lt'll be staying in the shed.... Unless there's a Zephyr meet later in the year which i would get it out for!

My KTM lives outside, in front of the house and I do ride that for "essential" food trips! So at least do get some biking in,

Stay safe and hopefully see you soon

Cheers eddie

My cat loves it too!!
