I can’t take the credit, I bought this restored, although I ended up doing a lot of finishing off and ‘tweaking’. I think the satin black is a two pack paint, pretty sure it’s not powder.Man, you certainly have a way of working with black. Did you powder coat that D grabrail? Love the finish on the forks too. My left cylinder on my D is running rich even though I've tried to lean it out quite a bit. I wish I hadn't had my MKIIs serviced. I was talked into that job last Fall. I had a blown headgasket which was replaced along with the pushrod seals. Remarkably, it was still running pretty good. Anyway, couldn't agree with you more on how lovely and fun the 140 is. I love it. Pretty much a Swiss watch.
