I bought an old ST1100 Pan European, which is 21 years old last August. As you would expect by the age it was tired but a solid bike.
I stripped it down, replaced the rear shock, disc and pads, gave it a full engine service and touch up of the plastic and replaced any broken parts. The body was wrapped in stealth black vinyl by Totally Dynamic in Glasgow. The wheels were removed and professionally powder coated in gloss black.
It went back on the road last weekend and I am pleased with it. It just shows that an amateur mechanic with a bit of cosmetic fettling can make a bike look brand new again!
