Looks great parapaul!

More proof that CSLs look just great on tourers, despite the age of the design they still look great! I'm tempted myself.

Teddy at SSDD is great, but he searched high and low for long black bolts for me and couldn't find any. So I went silver bolts and long lockers all round with spacers.

Have you not fitted front spacers then?

I can get the long black bolts for a few quid each, but the only longer black lockers are by McGards. 35 for a set of 4, but I only need 2 of them for the rear wheels, then I'd have to buy a second set of normal length ones for the front.

The thing is I really don't want different locking keys for the front and rear wheels - I've contacted McGards directly to see if they can supply 2 sets with the same key, or see if any UK distributor can.

Silver actually looks better with these wheels IMO, so I might replace the front bolts instead.

No front spacers - not yet anyway when I get it lowered and see how much clearance I've got I'll think about it again, but for now the offset of the rears with 15mm spacers visually matches the fronts without.

The headlights have needed doing since I got it - I didn't want to go down the wet sanding route but I might try toothpaste

If you want to do it in the middle of the night, feel free!
