    Default The panels are done!!!

    Until I get the rear seat unit done and seat pad made and fitted, I am going with a SP5 look on a Strada unit.

    She is going to look stunning! I am very happy.

    Looks very very nice.

    Just a question : Why would you go to a single seat unit when this looks so good and gives you other options. That the best rear seat unit SP5 lookalike combo I have seen apart from the center section where the lock is should have been white). Squint and you would miss the joins. Nice job !!!!

    Fair point, but as I will typically not be able to use the rear seat as I have high level pipes and no pegs, the pillion seat will be entirely redundant.
