I have had this bike about 4 years now,just upgraded and repaired a few bits (i'm not much 1 for maintenence).
Next on the list is to overhaul or if money allows replace the front suspension forks,I'm also considering giving it a respray but im not sure what colour i want it,i have seen a few pics on here where people have stripped the paint and polished the bare metal to a shine but i dont know if thats the look im after.
anyway heres the pics let me know what you think.

Looks very nice. I'm not really one for fenders but overall, it looks very good. I don't know why you want to paint it because it looks good just the way it is.

the krud catchers are the because i live out in the sticks and as for the paintwork the only reason i want it doing is there are quite a lot of scratches and chips in it
