By the way Big Dave, welcome to the forum, fill in the user CP up on the left hand side, and tell us a bit about yourself. That is quite some machine there.

Definitely leaving it natural, the tank is stainless but living next to the sea who knows what the frame will look like after a couple of months!! The style of the bike I think suited a more natural finish. I might change my mind if I get covered in rust every time I ride it!

I'm no sprayer but what about just giving it a coat of clear lacquer? Should keep the rust at bay?
