Great pictures. Great job on the bike. Gets me in the mood to do some work on mine. A question. What did you do to the swingarm to get it looking like that???? Were the fork sliders repainted too? The brake master cylinder???? powder coat. Tell me everything please.

Hi ddub
I am aiming for stock appearance. The motor is going to be 810cc but will look standard from the outside.

Hi Eckhard
The swing arm was ally welded and the rubbed down. This filled all the scrapes. I spent a bit of time on the preparation as it was also badly pitted behind the shock. I filled the pitting with liquid metal and rubbed down. When happy with flat surface I then sprayed with silver paint.
Fork sliders were cleaned and painted which was the same for the brake master cylinder. I used a product called PJ1 which comes in Gloss, Satin and Matt finishes. Hope this points you in the right direction.
Regards
Pete

Not looked at this project before but top job :cool:

Motivation is hard to keep up when doing a big job like this but you will be on the nicest bike at the T.T. next year when she's done :banana

Look forward to seeing more :D

Been a while since posting. Project is on hold but am trying to move forward. Bought a stable mate for him this week. A GPZ900R which needs some work but not as much as the turbo.How do I upload pictures? Cheers.
