Grab your shades ..... it's bright!

Last year we spent a couple of months working on an old 1980 Monza 1200s
which turned out to need much more work than we had expected.
You can read all about it here  
It took us until August to finally get it to a reasonable enough condition to be able to get a couple of trips away, most of the inside was painted and refurbished but the restoration was far from finished.
Much of the paintwork on the outside was still to be completed and the front box needed repaired.

With a few days off and a full weekend of Jubilee sunshine here in Fife,
 Kevin did an amazing amount of work on it.
 First on the box, the messy duct tape fix up was given a full fibreglass repair.
 and a couple of holes around the other side
where a stabiliser bracket was removed

undercoat and painted

next the jockey wheel and hand break got a rub down and a coat of silver
not bad !
the wheels got a rub down and a coat of silver also
we got really excited with a timely find on ebay last week
original Monza chrome hubs!
we were thinking white with the chrome but ran out of the white paint, these might get a coat of white later.

 looking much better
a big change to how it looked when we bought it a year ago

Oh wow this is looking great Yvonne. How do you envisage the interior decor? 'Olde worlde' with ginghams and crochet or do you prefer a more modern look? Mo :0)

Oh that's already been done Mo :) you can see it all by clicking on the labels link at the bottom of this post or if you go to the projects page and click on the Monza 1200s link :)

It's so lovely Yvonne! The door ribbon curtain immediately brought back memories of being a girl and seeing one flapping in the breeze at my mum's old back door :0)
Such a lot of hard work has gone into this, I'm glad you're all enjoying it. I think your stamp table is just awesome :0) x
