Dodgey Bike Repairs

Dropped round to Dodge's place after work yesterday to see how he was progressing on my old VTX. He was finishing the clear coat on the fenders when I got there and I must say it looks pretty darn good. He and Eddie, who are sharing the cost on the VTX, have ordered parts for the front end and they shouldn't be too far away, so it won't be too long before she is ready to go.

Whilst there I took some pix of the other bikes that Dodge is working on, a Triumph Speedmaster and Rocket. The Speedmaster is practically a new bike with only 1500kms on the clock - there was a bit of front end damage on it when he picked it up from the auctions but he has finished working on it and it looks like it has just rolled off the production line. The Rocket hasn't been touched yet but he did mention what he would like to do with it, and that also sounds like it will turn out pretty shmick.

I will post an update once the VTX is finished. Keep up the good work bud!

Paint on the tank looks great

I really like the silver grey tank with the flames! Looks beautiful. Can't wait to see the final result!
