    Project Resurrection

    I wasn't gonna fuss about showing this one, but since the other one seemed to draw interest...

    Turning a 19 year old bike into something more with the times and repairing and replacing as needed.

    Has around 100,000K on it, and most of the parts are still original (although has had at least 1 new paint job and seats re-covered).

    Am at odds about this fender... it looks good from the back but the lines of it arent right from the side. Might google image and get some ideas. It's a question of if it can be made to look good without too much work (just widening).

    If I don't use a fender that wraps around more than the stock one, the front fender I've already made for it will have to go as it won't match.

    Edit - Think I already found a solution to the weird looking rear fender.

    After google imaging I've seen quite a few nice bikes that simply had tail tidying and it made a world of difference. I decided I could modify and modernize whats there without making new parts.

    Today, made the stop light flush to the edge of the rear fender.

    Pulled air box and cleaned it. Very cool intake!



    Quite a few bits going to the polishing wheel since they are off. Clear coating over them to see if that keeps them from oxidizing (left) once polished (right).



    Got one muffler finished.

    Tacked up and ready to weld. Just gonna get a second opinion on the symmetry before I weld all the way up.





    Off and out for chrome (or if to pricey... polish and clear coating, or paint)

    Yeh they look pretty neat eh! I'm looking to get into making up and selling that sort of thing myself, mind if I ask what they sell for?

    So I said 'Let there be bars' and there was. And I saw that they were good, said that they were good, and they were good.

    Actually, won't know until they are on. Hope I don't need longer cables!
