1982 DB Silver Streak - **FINISHED PICS - PAGE 3**
« on: August 02, 2015, 04:33 PM »
I got hold of this back in April, from the US. It was a decent price, until HMRC decided to intervene.

It's a 1982, with OG survivor chrome and decals, and that's how I want it to look, so there'll be no rechroming, anodising or polishing here - well, that's the plan.

I have a Sugino 1 piece and spider, both OG chrome, and I've got a black fluted post off Dan (x600se), which has now had the wet/dry treatment, and I've had a message off a fellow owner, saying that they maybe getting rid of some parts, so hoping to do a deal there.

Anyway, pics...

So when the X-Factor comes on, it gives me a chance to get out and tinker.

So I've fitted the headset, DB stamped bars I got off Del, SR MS-420 I got off Dave Brummie, and some F1 copies I got gratis off Lee Nitrohopper - cheers lads.

You might want to invest in one of clints jam buttie head locks or flex fighters, I found the rise of the bars a bit low for me and I'm a short ass, I brought them up and inch and it was much better

Fitted the SR seat clamp today, and the Aero seat, the pads too, to get a feel for it.

Looking good Dan 👍 remember going to the bike shop before Christmas and hinting to my dad how much I loved the silver streak as he ordered me a pro star hoping that he'd secretly ordered me the diamond back.
