New Paint Job
Spent my Australia Day Long wknd giving the Vstar a new paint job- getting rid of the rattle can matte black & replacing with a nice metallic blue.
Looks tidy in the sun but the clear coat needs to be wet sanded back & polished to get rid of the Orange peel.
Made a mini front mudguard as a compromise between having one & not. Seems to work.
Also scored a second hand solo rack for cheap which is a win.
Christened it with a 900km return trip just a few days after.
