Good to know Robin that will narrow my search for am emblem for my 78.Could be one of the reasons there are so few to be found and the few are expensive!

Very impressive work and amazing attention to all of the details. Both bikes are gorgeous and worthy of BOTM.

Thanks for all the great pictures!

What a sight those two motorcycles! Maury you made two masterpieces! to have only 10% of your ability and skill, that would be great!
Only very few professionals have such a skill in restoration here in Italy, who charge their weight in gold!

My hat off to you, Sir!!
Fabulous job done on both. On the fork emblem, 75-77 did not have it.
