Hi all,

Some may remember that this time last year I discussed the fact that after my dad passed away, I found an ‘86 plus 4 in his garage. I debated if I wanted to keep it and do the ‘right thing’ by my dad and have work done on it.

Well, I bit the bullet and sent it away. The boys at Techniques did an amazing job on engine and hardly any work was required on the chassis and frame despite being an ‘86. It then went for a re trim with fresh Bentley grade leather.

My design plan was to strip it back a little bit apply a kind of ‘cafe racer’ style to it. I am absolutely over the moon with the results and I’m sure I’ve done my dad proud.

It had a complete re spray in a classic Porsche GT silver.

Ha ha, it may be....I saw a picture of a classic Porsche and decided I liked the eyelets. The cross stitch was more from the way cafe racer motor bike seats are done.
