Pintura Especial Antiguo or The PEA

I've been rolling the R90/6 in and out of the shop for about 8 months and I finally figured out what I wanted to do with it.

In the beginning it looked like this,



It now has a lot of BOXER Metal parts, dual disc front end, handlebar mount master cylinder......

I plated some of the hardware tonight and weathered it to look like old nickel plating for Pintura Especial Antiguo. So I have a mix of this and original chrome plated R90S hardware. Should have a cool vintage look when it's finished.

Looks great apart from giving the impression of dragging it's arse. Have you fitted shorter shocks? It looks as though it needs longer shocks at the rear. Nice work apart from that. Looks a treat.

They are stock length shocks. It's the angle of the picture and the seat that give that look.

I had this custom seat for a while so I decided it was time to modify the rear subframe and use this seat. It is 7" shorter than a stock seat. I think I like the look.
