Cheers, yes she came up well. It's been 8 yrs since restoration, the fairing is a Dunstall 750 four fairing made to fit with some creative bracket work and some drag bars. Looks different on a GT. She spent quite a few yrs with family nterstate but stored well so didnt need much . Some of the polished alloy has lost it's lustre so i might get back into that again,

All in all im just happy to have the old girl back and running :)

Looks good with that Dunstall fairing on it. There's someone in QLD or northern NSW with the same fairing on an M model. I'm sure that one had a Bromlech 3 into 1 exhaust.

My Dunstall GT750 is not a stock GT color.

Tz, mate that looks fantastic. What bars do you have on that machine? Clip ons?

You are probably thinking of the same bike. I was in Brissy and the fairng was blue some time back. Looks better colour matched. I still have the Bromlech system hanging in the shed. :up:

Just need to pick up where i left off 6 yrs ago getting the jetting right for the Higspeed chambers.

Blue it was. I screen grabbed all the pictures you posted with the old screen name.

I tried 3 or 4 different bends and ended up using a set of Drag bars. They are flat and bent back just enough to work with the Hyabusa footpegs, but the seat is too tall with those longer shocks. I need to refit the OEM shocks so I can reach the ground.

I like the new paint scheme and especially way you did those matching stripes.

You are all over it mate, the 2 stroke community really is a small world.

The fairing came up really well, It almost looks made for it in the standard colour. There are a couple of new spacers under the back mounts now, they help with the bar clearance and clean the lines up a bit. But it still doesnt look quite right from side on. The lines just are not right for the GT, but it grows on you.
