No, I don't remember that particular guy, but I always find it a little bit sad when I see how much time, effort, and money must go into these restorations, then the bike never gets ridden again....

In my considerable experience, all these Gen 1 heat fixes on the internet, do not work. The only thing which helps a bit, is to fit a short windscreen on the fairing. A large windscreen creates a...
