Welcome to the Forum, and thanks for sharing the pictures of your bike, really great Job, yes I believe all "RE" Guys and Gals are really great people after all its the "great taste" we all have in common.
I was wondering where you purchased the Tail/brake light and the emblem below the brake light from, I would love to put that on my bike if possible....

Hi Mark,
Thankyou, Bare is right, you can buy them from any good bike bits dealer, when you remove the old tail light fitting, there is a large square hole which needs to be covered, I found the RE emblem on the web, their are lots of dealers on the web, its solid brass.

Brilliantly done!
The stock swing arm caps do look a bit cheesy, and I was wondering what to do with them.
Genius, brother, genius!
