I have had the Seeley frame painted in a metallic silver, the man wielding the spray gun Tim of TJC design in Bristol. He has produced a great job although in the photo you can't see the metallic sheen and just it looks grey. All the work was facilitated via Nick Anderson who runs Reality Motorworks the one stop shop for motorcycle restoration service (premises next door to TJC Design which is handy). When I came to ask about the bill I was told it was FOC :up: :up: :up: as a modest gesture of sponsorship for the 2018 season (modest ?? about £200 worth). We shall be applying a few http://realitymotorworks.co.uk decals to the fairing next year. The down side :( now I have to get the fairing and seat re-sprayed to match the chassis :D , we might be the "Silver Dream Racer" for next season lol.

Hello Eamonn,

It does look good in the metallic silver :) . The decision to paint was driven by corrosion protection but I'm glad I have had it done.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Cheers Geoff

Thanks, Eamonn :up:

My rider Gary May is due for some surgery in early Feb so it depends on his recovery before we go racing again.

Cheers Geoff

Hi Geoff,

Well I wish Gary a speedy recovery that bike should be motivation enough to spur him on.

I plan to be in the Uk with my work sometime this year when I know the dates I will let you know would be great to see the bike in the flesh (so to speak)

Enjoy the show

cheers

Eamonn

Hi Eamonn,

It would be good to see you when you are over :up: . I live in the west country, just outside the city of Bath so hope you are in my vicinity.

Cheers Geoff

Hey Geoff
how are preparations for your season going? I have my fist race coming up 22nd April in Alcarras. I am fitting some new Tyres and this time going to try a set of Conti`s Attack 2CR. I noticed a lot of the guys in Spain run them on the bigger bikes and there are a couple of tracks in Spain where the Avon does not seem to work well. Los Acros (Next round) and Catalunya. Just wanted to ask if you had ever run them? Well I will let you have some feedback after the 1st race.

Take care and good luck for the season

Cheers

Eamonn
