so this is my af1 50.its a bit tatty here and there but it sure is nippy.its faster than the rs50's.it was the multicoulured versian(purple,red,white,green) but i bought it in bad condition so i resprayed it black.what do u guys think.any comments would be appreciated

Looks like it's all business. A few small, well placed stickers would do the trick to finish it.

It is very nice, and i agree some stickers would look nicer.

Is the front bottom fairing missing (behind the front wheel) ? :eek:

04-26-2003, 08:05 AM
yeah i no.im looking for some mean stickers to put on it then it will be finished.the bottem ferring has just come apart.the wind just ripped it of.the holes where the screws go r @#%$ so i need some work on that bit.then i need some wing mirrors and a bithere and there and it will be great.i changed the indicators and i tinted them.theyr carbon and look much better than the stock ones

04-26-2003, 04:16 PM

ok if you go to a local panel beater garage and just ask them to put on a couple of coats of laquer itll shine up a treat but make sure its 2 pack laquer and shouldnt cost all that much either:D

04-27-2003, 12:11 PM
ok.ill try that.thanks.ur habana looks great by the way!!love it.yeah ill try that laquer soon.to be honest i just like driving the thing.i get a fair few looks on it.especially at night cos i have those neon dustcaps.i no theyr dangerous but they look good with the black bike!!!

04-29-2003, 12:48 PM
looks good i want to really find some curvey roads to test my RS75 out on.... but not much luck here in Dallas, but there are a few spots. Anyways bike looks pretty good, i would get some new mirrors, and stuff. Oh ya what are neon dustcovers?? Do you mean the lights u put on the tire valve stems?

04-29-2003, 01:00 PM
yeah i no about the mirrors.just cant be arsed to fork out about 30 and buy some!!:p and that ferring is being difficult to fix!! yeah neon dust caps just go on ur valve on ur tire.they flash a really nice light whaen the wheel spins round and give off a really nice affect.they look really nice i think

04-30-2003, 05:38 AM
Why are the neon dust caps dangerous?

04-30-2003, 02:40 PM
cos they unbalance the wheel at high speeds and some cases have forced the valve to let out the air in the tire very quickly.(so ive heard!!)

Nice brick!!!!!

07-11-2003, 09:02 AM
yeah the stands on those old aprilias are pretty crap to say the least.the stand actually just gave way on me so i had to get that welded.i also fixed the ferring on my bike so theres no more of a gap on the bottem!!

07-12-2003, 08:44 AM
LOL nice brick :D

07-16-2003, 01:16 PM
