No, I didn't bother to take pix while doing the work. But to be honest, I didn't have to do much. The bike ran perfect when I bought it for $1000. I took it down to the bare frame, re-painted the frame, cleaned every single part within an inch of its life, replaced the bars, hit all the chrome with SOS pads, had the case and cam covers polished, and found a set of spoke wheels for it. Put everything back together, put it on eGay and it sold almost immediately!
You bike looks extremely original down to the exhaust, paint, turn indicators, etc..... I could do a lot with that bike, and make some good $$$ over the winter. That's what I like to do. Find good bikes cheap during the winter, give them some much needed attention and re-sell come spring.
