    Posted: 03 Oct 2017 at 11:34
Sunday I finally got around to putting the falco back together after sitting in the garage for nearly 2 years since buying it as a replacement for my smashed Mille but rebuilt that instead and now broken for parts and sent around the world to help others keep there's going ha ha

So just need a front tyre for the M.O.T and I'll be back on the road

Connected a battery and she burst into life ...sounded good with the renegades...yes it's Rob's old bike


the side panels need a bit of white as in the original paint idea below from motomac.it website (http://www.motomac.it/Aprilia%202/Futura_RS.htm), the bike had been low-sided and lost the original painted side-panels so its either going to be some white vinyl or a decal to break it up
the low side also forced the high bar conversion before I bought it ...

Nice one Mark Clap

Looks great with the high bars and Rene's.

I like the black side fairings though, not sure they need to be white....

knowing me being lazy they will probably stay black but may have a decal on them but the gold levers and grips will be changed I think

That's better Mark, the gold did look out of place. I disagree with Diablo though, I think the white as per the original theme would look much better.

Looking good though

Also forgot to say I swapped out the hugger for one with a little bit of colour thing is the highlevel pipes block it out!!
 
hugger decals can be obtained from gary woods aka RSV_Ecosse on here ... nice little addition for not a lot of dosh ClapThumbs Up  fit both plastic and carbon huggers
 
 
found some linkpipes and cans in the shed LOL as you do!
 
so may try those... not 100% on the high levels

Might be interested in the Rene's for another little project, if your getting rid Mark.....

Or the chap Adamantis wanting Hi mount Gianelli's the other day.

Looks so much better without the Puig grips and gold levers!

Is that one of Gary's hugger decals?

I seem to have been doing this a lot recently, not absorbing info etc

The shock testing's not going too well....

I went to Santa Pod nearly a month ago and been barely able to walk on my crutches since. I got quite down for a bit Ouch

I still have you down as dibbed though, if you want Mark Wink
