    Great , glad it arrived safely, have you got it running now on its own pump and I hope the fuel gauge works , if not, Errolls site will tell you how to calibrate and fix it , but do not expect it to be overly accurate .

    Fairings look well. Got me thinking it might be worth getting a set and putting the standards in the attic. Incase it gets thrown down the road !

    Cheap way to get a "LE"
    Tre fairings , are superbike but the chinky copies are Limited Edition .
    I think I would rather have a set of unpainted ones, that would then let you paint and the decals etc and end up with a set of pukka fairings , after you modify them to fit .
    Tail section is also not quite right .
    The problem in the UK is the Import tax and good old Parcelforce delivery charges , add another 20 %, bit like the VAT.
    I hate paying for something I can afford to buy , only to make a contribution to the rest of the system.

    I know ,I am not publicly spirited ,but its my money. and i want to decide , how I spend it ..

    New fairings

    Thanks for the offer Pete your help has been great . Will probably make 1 out of thin polycarbonate for the present will make a template out of cardboard then cut the thin polycarbonate just to make it look presentable i just spotted the small hole for the key for the passenger seat thats why the seat is up a little will drill it out bigger so i can get the Key in , with all the dogey holes they are there they are either too small or to big but i expected that for the dollars still got to put the heat sheild on hope the plastic doesn't melt the first time the bike is ridden all good fun keeps me busy

    just look on Fleabay, there is an original genuine Benelli screen for £30 now .
    Why make one when there are originals . Great you have it almost up and going.
    Want to see the clip of it running.
