”All you need is Autosol rubbing compound and a lot of patience”, Lasse comments.

The front shockers needed some attention as well.

Before.
The previous owner had for some strange reason sprayed the passenger seat white.
”The only thing that helps is industrial alcohol and rubbing, rubbing, rubbing...” Lasse says.

On the road.
As you can see,all the rubbing paid off. The bike looks almost new.

Further plans: Lasse is looking for a better rubber hose for the air cleaner, an original Cobra tachometer and a few other minor things. If you have parts lying around, please contact him at lars.sellbom@telia.com.
