We had two blue Volvo Duett when l grew up. The first was a P445 from 1957 that was originally red with off-white around the windows before dad painted it the same blue as the one in the picture. The second was a P210 from 1966 in a lighter shade of blue. Thank you for sharing!

You can polish off the rust on your shaft and spray it with clear paint to stop it from rusting again - the rest of your bike is looking fantastic and deserve a shiny shaft :cool:
Great looking bike - where di you get the Star tank decal - it looks fantastic

After installing my pod kit the other day I had a brainwave and figured out that the carb cover from the left fits perfectly fine on the right side too. :cool: Now I just have to find another one to replace the left side one... 😃 Here is what she looks like now:

Thanks Les, but the postage from the US to the EU is just too damn high, and then the import and handling duties this side would also be a large chunk of cash. I will try source something this side of the pond. (y)

After I did my pod mod one of my mods was to buy and install a Bendex air filter (see photos). The filter has a flat metal plate that the filter sits on and the plate is easy to line up with the stock mounting holes for the 'dog dish' and just involves drilling a few faster holds and bolting it on. To 'jazz it up' I used my tank VStar decoration, cut off the STAR part of the decal, JB welded a bolt to the back side and just bolted it on the center by punching the bolt through the filter.

You can buy this here:

Filter without the decoration:

For the left side of my bike I installed an old-school style Harley Horn. These are for sale everywhere.

That looks very cool! I wonder if someone has them in Europe. I will look around a bit. (y)
