Can’t believe someone would go to the bother of cleaning and painting a drive chain any colour!

Still, if the pink had been red, it would have been a very attractive bike! And chains can be bought in any color you want :)

I've just asked my pink consultant, she of great pinkness what lives in the pink room of our house (teenaged daughter) with the response "oooh I don't like that".

Under cross examination to establish further ground rules on pinkness and as to why it doesn't pass muster, "it's just not nice " and "they haven't done that well"

I therefore submit,  that it's just not good enough  ;D

Right, but I started my biking career with a red one 45 years ago ;)

I've just sent the pic to my daughter, besides her ER6 Kwak, KLX250 Kwak, Honda CBR600 track bike, she has a CB125 (cable disc version) that we are planning a resto/cafe job on, her response was... "Wow can we do that to mine!"
