Yes the blue is nice but the black and orange is striking!
What he said. That orange = instant street cred!

Ha! I like it, the guy did a really great job on them both.

Just dropped off my MX with him this morning... He's going to give it a full service, change the seals and re-cover it too... Decided to go for a really nice brown leather as opposed to the blue I was originally thinking...

Picking it up next week... Will post a shot then...

He's a guy who's local to me... Alan (haven't caught a surname) ... Found him through ebay... This is one of his listings and I made initial contact through that site then realised he's only a 20 minute drive from me, so we've dealt in person... Very nice chap...

I like the orange!

Here's my Ebay special K1000 with newly acquired 135mm f/3.5 lens. Nothin' special, but it works

"Nothing special"?....The "SE" would be relatively rare would it not?....and the lens & camera look to be in good shape, so I say it's gotta be a "bit" special, at the very least?!.
