Lovely! I’m sending my 67 TR6C tank off to the painter this weekend, very excited to see how it comes out

That tank looks gorgeous. I do hope the coachline placement lines up correctly with the emblems, it is SO distracting to me when they don't...

I always use the badges going on the tank as either side of most tanks are never symmetrical Paul :-)

A few months work and Su has her own off road styled bike to go with my 66 T120TT, its a 67 TR6C but styled as the 63-66 TR6SC desert bike built for the US market only as was the TT. Thanks for all the nice comments and likes along the way smile
