Hi all. In 2016 bought a Silver Wing, year 2001, mileage was 10500 km, bought at auction BDS in Japan,a bit scruffy, but in General I'm satisfied
English I don't know for translation I use online translator, so I apologize






Later I dyed it,which I regret already

Hello Nickolaevich. Welcome to the forum. Best wishes with your new scooter. Thank you for sharing the nice photos. It looks as if you have cut down the windscreen. What is the monument in photo #4 ?

Tim

Tachanka-Rostovchanka — monument (the monument) built in the year of the 60th anniversary of the great October socialist revolution. Dedicated to the first Cavalry army during the Civil war.
The monument was opened in 1977, made of plaster and hollow inside. On top of the composition is covered with sheets of copper. The monument at the southern entrance to Rostov-on-don.

Glass original I left him because he fell into disrepair.
I bought two glasses, both made in Moscow, the guy himself did. Two glasses for about $ 70
Here is a photo of the second glass,set it when cold

Nice to hear from you again, Nikolaevich. Unfortunately 8 of your original photos are missing. Probably held hostage by some photo hosting service.

I hope that you enjoy this riding season. Your "new" Silverwing looks great. The fog lights add a special touch too. The fog light mount look especially interesting. Do you have more photos of the fog light mounts?

I also enjoyed Vyacheslav's photos from Motopolarnik. Did you ride there with him? Such an extreme moto rally. We have nothing like that here in the west. I can't even find any more informations about the Motopolarnik. Is there a website for that event?

I unfortunately do not understand what this means Monopolarnic.I got acquainted with Vyacheslav when he went to the Crimea, his way lay through my city.And after a ride on my moped, he switched from 400 CC to 600 CC.

In the case of fog lamps, the mount consists of three positions:
1. 6mm-8mm

" />

2.
25mm
