Oh my. That is beautiful. I would be tempted to go out to the garage every night and rub it with a diaper instead of running the risk of getting it dirty on a ride.

What method does he use to polish the cam covers, peg brackets, etc? Buffing wheel? Elbow grease? Ancient Chinese secret?

Just in time for winter!

As soon as he let's me in on his secrets I'll let you know. He still is working on painting, chin spoiler, badging, HB rack and cases....details. But over all I think he did outstanding work on a previously beautiful motorcycle and add some needed details to make her a more modern sports bike....all of which is typical of his prior rebuilds.

The first scratch will suck but I've got lots of duck and reflective tape to hide my sins. I was thinking of taking the living room furniture out and......

No....she's gonna be ridden. Otherwise, I'm gonna hear a ton of S**T from guys like Duck.

Won't see her for a few more weeks . Winter's almost over....right?

It's your bike. Do whatever you want with it. Turn it into a planter for all I care.

I'd add a coil cover though - just for the socket so you have an easy way to hook up a battery tender as well as power for heated gear if you ever want to ride in the cold.

Just playing with ya.... How are things on that side of the lake? Good suggestion on the coil cover. Will check what we have in inventory.

If you look real close you will see just above coils there exists a plug in for assorted goodies.

It's hard to tell from the shadows in the pictures but it looks like he may have cut off the bottom half of the coil cover so that the socket at the top is still there.

I don't know if this qualifies as custom, with just a Corbin seat, Progressive shock, HyperPro springs and Spiegler stainless lines, but I would like to know what I should sell it for. It's pretty brilliant, other than some small wear marks on the passenger grab handles from years of strapping down luggage. I hate to sell it, but hate even more to let it sit in the garage.

Beautiful.....miles,etc. ?

A well documented cared for low mileage bike with some good quality mods...... $3,500-$5,000.

Well, it's got 67K on it, which I consider low for a 21 year old bike. This year it's gotten new brake pads, replacement gear position sensor, plugs, air filter, all fluids except coolant and had all the splines lubed. Last year it got new steering head bearings. All maintenance has been documented for the last 30K miles or so.

I'm hoping to get somewhere in the middle of that range for it in the spring.

I'd say $3,000 would be a fair price for both buyer and seller. Maybe a little more since the splines have been lubed.

(Just one person's opinion.)
