I read somewhere recently (either on here or a FB group) about how the fork guard on the front made the ET4 look naff, so I thought I'd have a go at removing it and seeing what it looked like. I removed the guard, painted the fork and suspension with black Hammerite and then relocated the old tax disc holder to the front to make use of the bracket that the guard screws on to so that it at least looked like it had some use.

Personally I think it looks miles better and gives the scooter a bit more of a traditional look. I notice most of the modern ones don't have this fork guard on either.
