Hi guys,
Remember Fablon ? from the 70's ? or you might know it as sticky back plastic from Blue Peter !!! lol ....anyways its still out there and I have used it on a few applications on bikes over the years but this is what I have just done on the Volucia.

All VL800's have a vertical plastic panel just behind the side covers and it has kind of rectangular indents in it, looks a bit plain so get your Fablon out and fill em in !!!

Make a paper template on the shape and the cut round it over your chosen colour, I used chrome but you can used what you like.





You can get it from Wilko's, here's a link,

It certainly is Jim, we share in the hope that others will follow or find inspiration in the mods that we do and put there own take on it and give us another new mod. Your bike is looking great and I an sure already will become your own, well don and keep up the good work and inspiration that you have started off so well with.
