Stunning Paul Smart 1000

A few months back I decided to enter my PS in a custom car/bike motor show which was held over the past 2 days.

This was my first ever show and I wanted to present my bike in the best possible I decided to go that extra mile and what you see attached is the result.

Many sleepless nights in the home garage, particularly in the week leading up to the show and I literally just made the entry deadline by about 1 hour... hence the rather bodgy display.... Fortunately I have a very understanding wife!

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy the pics.... and trust you don't mind me saying that I'm damn happy with the result...

Greg, thanks for taking the photo's mate.

Wow. That thing is immaculate. I don't know if I've ever seen a cleaner *anything*.

I didn't realize how much work you'd put into it until I saw the closeup photos. Every bit polished. Bolt replacements, etc. A lot of subtle modifications going on there (and some like the zards, not so subtle).

I'd be afraid to ever take it outside, let alone ride it.

I mean, check out the polishing:

Like a beautiful woman.. anything that easy on the eye is easy to take good photo's of.

If there was/is a Paul Smart hall of fame this would be the one people are trying knock off the top and set there standards by.

Great gob mate, I was honestly gobsmacked by the finish and detail.

Now. You just have to get rid of those gold engine cover bolts and replace them with some Titanium.
Ohh - And get a bit of lube back on that chain.

Only word that comes to mind is WOW. At first glance it is incredible and then the more you look at the fine detail you really understand the love that went into this bike.

Well done

A stunning labor of love. Congratulations
