We have some brand new pictures of our red AS1C up. It was one of the first bikes we shot a gallery of so it needed a bit of freshening up. Check it out in the museum here!
I Hope you”re enjoying the summer, because we sure are, the temperatures are up and the sun is shining! We’ve completed the blue AS1C, it was as good as done in the last update but now we’ve got the last few pieces in place, you can see the last update here.
On top of that we’ve got the first of the three upcoming galleries done: the first bike up is, fittingly, the blue AS1C. We started of shooting the pictures outside in the sun, unfortunately some problems with firing the flashes to lighten the shadows on the bike meant we had to move it inside for the detail shots. That meant that instead of basking in the sunshine for a few hours I was confined to a small room with no windows and lacking ventilation for crawling around with a camera. Needless to say it got ridiculously warm in there! The end result more than justifies the temporary inconvenience, the bike is looking insanely good! You can see the gallery here.
We’ve also received pictures from Alan in South Africa of his FS1, be sure to head over to the friends section and take a look, it’s a real pearl.
Until next time!
Today we’ve got a brand new update on the blue AS1C, it’s complete apart from the side covers on the fuel tank. This means we’re in a situation we haven’t been in before, we now have three bikes that are about to be photographed for the gallery and each one of them is a different AS model!
We have the blue AS1C, the second orange AS2J and the second red AS3. The reason for this is that we’ve rebuilt our workshop! During the last weeks we’ve had contractors here who’ve installed new equipment for us, now they are done and we can get back to building more efficiently again.
Until next time!
It’s as good as done now, we’ve got the side covers and the tank on. The nice thing about the fuel tank is that it is brand new which can be seen inside it, unfortunately it had a few blemishes in the paintjob so we had Bassel repaint it. The front light housing and the meter are hooked up as well with all the electrics nicely wired inside. There’s only one thing left, the pearlescent sides of the fuel tank and we’ll have those tomorrow! Expect a gallery real soon 🙂
Now that we’ve got the pearlescent fuel tank sides on complete with the rubber guards and the Yamaha logo the bike is all done, you can find the gallery here!
