Looks awesome. What width are the racing stripes and gap?

I'm looking to do some stripes on my ride.

Hi Rebel73 - stripes on the tank and rear deck are 45mm wide with a 12mm gap between them. Have also fitted a fibreglass front guard that is shorter and narrower than the original, stripes on the guard are 22mm wide with a 12mm gap - I'll post a pic of the guard shortly.

Quick update on progress plus a few more pics ...
I didn't like the painted side covers so now they are satin black to match the air intake covers - much more to my liking.
The original chrome front guard made the bike to too front heavy so Mick made a mould from it and laid up a new fibreglass guard that is now shorter and narrower. It's blue with matching silver stripes - tones the front end down.
Had to fit a cushioned seat (ex Triumph rear passenger pad) - my rear end is much happier.
Next steps still include satin black rear foot peg brackets, braided lines, and one day spoked wheels.

That looks fabulous. The side cover change was good.

Is that an old Lincoln in the garage?

Philippians 4:8 (NIV)
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
