Got a friend who said he'll paint the tank, side covers and fenders for me in Cadillac Pearl White so it's pretty much a match to the original color. (Owns an auto body shop and specializes in custom work but he's slowly shutting the place down to enjoy his retirement.) I haven't stripped a bike down in over 30 years. Tank doesn't look too awful hard, front fender and side panels are easy but the rear fender looks like it might be a bit difficult. Any advice before I end up with a bike I can't put back together myself? I don't have a garage or carport so I'll have to ride it to his place and then start stripping parts off.

Is there a maximum weight the postie should carry? I'm loaded to the hilt and Mo seems to have no problems no matter what I throw at him.
its 120/130 from memory legally.
Is that weight including the rider?
John, I like those red panniers - what did you make them from?
130kg max rider with 25kg on the rack, but auspost likes their riders around 90kgs i believe.
Thanks - I weighed some stuff at the Post Office today and I reckon I'm carrying close to 22kgs. But I'm not disclosing what I weigh ;-)
The max weight is not determined by if it pulls away from the lights or if it gets up a 30 degree gradient. It's when things go pear shaped that the weight counts.
