Pez and KYCOP were talking about coming down to help a little, but with it being so close to time for the Dragon now, that may be unlikely.

Got a little clean up done tonight with some simple green and the car wash. Can't tell much with it being dark, but she was pretty nasty from some seriously bad for seals. Froggy, I don'y know how you rode this thing.



Got the seat off and looking over the bike for a little more planning of what needs to be done. Talked the wife into letting me have the garage for the next 6 weeks till I can finish the buid and figure out what to do with it after that.

I'm starting to think if you didn't have a project to work on, you'd just explode from the energy! Glad to see GAR removal was already done...

You planning to paint it to match the name! Some nice warts and bumbs to match a frog. At least try to add a big Peace Frog on the tank.

Lol...not exactly. Paint is going to be satin black with a large gun metal racing stripe accented with red striping. Wheels are powder coated black. Trying to decide now on how much chrome, for example, forks and bars. I think polishing the forks and making all the controls and mirrors polished aluminium or chrome would look better than patches of chrome and black here and there. For example, making the risers and bars black on top of chrome and/or polished trees.

Thoughts?

Got the bike up on the jack last night and started tearing her apart...



Some pics of what I'm working with and what needs to be done...

Frame touch up


Little polishing and some body work on the tank.


Yeah, intake has to change!


Pipes to be wrapped and exhaust tips as well as clean up that fender and new leather on the seat (going to be done by Road Rash)


And here is how she sits this morning. Only reason I didn't completely remove the forks and trees last night was the front axle was being stubborn so I will need to take some tools home from work today.

Was up WAY too late last night after watching NCIS, NCIS Los Angeles and Top Shot season finale, was about mid night before I even went to the garage. Went to bed around 2:00AM!
