More progress. The forks legs got polished up to 800 grit. They also received new seals, dust wipers and oil. They seems to actually work properly now unlike before I started. I also rebuilt the front mechanical brake assembly. The frame, swing arms and all of the other small parts including pegs, brackets, crown etc all went to the powder coater. Headers are receiving black ceramic coating. The rims are also getting powder coated semi-gloss black. Everything else is Gloss. The gas tank, side covers and fenders are going to get a metallic Gun Metal gray color; probably not until December. Next month I'll have the wheels re-laced and new rubber put on so I can start piecing this thing back together. If anyone has any good advice on how to clean up the motor without taking it apart, I'd appreciate it! Thanks for reading!!

So you can see where I started; one on the right is unpolished:

Forks complete:

Shiny stuff, all the chrome that will be on the bike:
