the important part to remember is:
Ouzo goes into the right compartment
Retsina into the left.

Thanks guys! I think there's plenty of space for a lot of retsina ouzo and wine!! the carrying capabilities
of the little beast are highly appreciated!!
I bet on Honda reliability for all the maintenance repairs that i am doing on my swing it is a 2002 model that i am planning to restore piece by piece, i have started by the mechanical part and everything looks and sounds good after a belt replacement at 112.000 klm and a general check-up on the engine and liquids. The plastics is the next step .....
My wife is already concerned about the hours i spend with the wing!

SuperSergio, you've just got to tell her how much fun it will be when you go riding with her on the back. Maybe she's getting concerned because she has to wait so long for that first ride... Maybe?

Dale i can tell you that she already Love the comfortable back seat !
Today she was impressed with the extreme make over on the bike after i finish painting half of it...it was in very bad and ugly condition.
I am planning to finish with the custom matt color paint job tommorow.
I will post some photos of the results !

SuperSergio, welcome aboard. I would like to see the Swing after you get done painting it. Are you doing the painting yourself? If yes then how? Al from Tucson,AZ

Sure Al , i will post some pics once i finish.
I am doing it with the worst way possible which is with spray cans but is the cheapest way and I don't want to spend more on the painting than the mechanical maintenance.
I use automotive metallic color and matt clear afterwards.
First of all i take of all the parts I sand them in 3 Stages then i paint the metallic color and the clear, all this is done inside the garage to avoid the dust.

SuperSergio you are dead wrong.
I always use spray cans to do my bikes and other things which need another color.
It last years and the touch up is easy since you already have the right color in stock.
I always try different brands and colors on a little piece like the fender or in my SIlver Wing  the front to see how the look in real life and if the quality is ok.
I never sanded, just cleaned the surface and then cleaned it again with rubbing alcohol.
It is also the cheapest way, the fastest way and you can choose the design (contrast colors to bring out some nice features)
