Fingers crossed Gus.  The TLR is a nice looking classic.  Seems to be a few parts on ripperdeals.au.com if you're in need of any.

I was just thinking that the blonde accessory side stand probably gets thrown in with the sale!  Very Happy

I can't wait. 
I still want one even though I know the Storm is just as good with me aboard and probably a lot more comfortable.

Great new project, considering you rebuilt that tl that was in pieces this should be easy. The TLR does nothing for me though. A Honda sp2 is so much better looking IMO.

Very true Gus. I bet if the fairings are stuffed you can make a beautiful looking naked bike out of it.

I don't particularly agree with modifying a perfectly running bike but here is some info from one such enthusiast with a TLR1000 (TL1000R)
