You win Aris.

Somehow I figured you would win. How did you find the answer?

Hi Andy,
I did a search for 'pressed steel frame motorcycles' and I got it!
There aren't too many, BMW and then Honda used this kind of frame a lot.
Ohh, I'm giving away my cheating tricks
How did you remove the Honda lettering so nicely from the engine? Did you first remove it and then colour it as the rest or something?

Hi Aris,

In Photoshop I used the Clone Stamp Tool (looks like a rubber stamp). You just Alt-Click near the area you want to duplicate and then go to the area you want to cover and click. Its one of the most useful tools in Photoshop.

I noticed my original picture was a larger size. Then the next day it was re-sized. Do you know who did that? Mind you the picture on my server is still bigger. Somehow SBW re-sizes it.

Ah If I had photoshop I would be able to do better as well then
Unfortunately I don't have any real photo editing on my PC at work
Now that you mentioned about the size being bigger originally, on Friday while posting a picture I got a message that it was too big and I had to resize it. It was a similar message to the one we get in the ZR7 site.
I don't know how it works exactly, but I think that it was done automatically. If it was done by someone (moderator or else) the message would have a note at the bottom saying who edited it and when.
I can find out if you want me to though. Robert will surely know how it works!
