    Hi Gang…First post, be kind. Just returned from the cafe racer festival in Paris & was blown away by the Vitpilen Blue Edition created by the Parisian dealer. HOW do they do the “tank bulges” in machined/polished alloy finish ? I have seen another of their bikes showing the same finish…I’m intrigued.

    Hmmm, wonder if I can find pics of it online. So far no luck. Would love to see it!

    It was produced by HVR Paris…
    I do have photos of it, but cannot work out how to post.

    I believe it is just metallic paint. Metal caps would be an awesome aftermarket add-on though.

    Anyone know how the reflectors are attached to the forks on the side? Are they just stuck on? If so, just shimmy them off?

    They are just stuck on with double sided tape and come off easily when warmed with a hairdryer and a bit of fiddling.
