I suggest some black in there to accent the orange. Looking good! Any performance/handling modifications you are considering?

Hey Euro...

Yea mate I have my bikini fairing in black and front fender in black...and on the tank i will have the black knee pads.

You reckon that would be good? Should break it up enough right?

Well in terms of performance/handing modifications, I have progressive springs up front, new shocks (admittingly Hagons..not the best but better than stock) and I have updated my ingition system to a Boyer...

I have rebuilding kits for my carbies...

I am not going to open the engine as of yet, doesnt need it, ran strong pre-disasemble so no need to touch it yet (i think)

any other suggestions i could upgrade?

Small update

Hey guys

So I was making 100% sure everything was saweet for painting this weekend and i noticed an ever so slight dent in the tank above the right knee pad - we cant have that - so i filled it in, sanded high filled, sorted!


All done - much better!!


ooo got my paint!! I am so amped for this weekend, yew! I have the colour known as "electric orange" its a 4 stage paint. white/grey ground coat, then the orange, pearl, then the clear.


Ah yea...hahah, i got these pesky little fella's out of the frame, with help from dad :) didnt have the key for either of them, but with the key that i DID have for the ignition, it seemed to work?

When using De beers. Make sure that you allow more time between coats than they say. Seems to take a long time to tack off.

Hope you are using a good spray mask. The normal ones from Bunnings don't work in filtering out toxic over spray and paper overalls with a hood.

With a bit of patience, you can get a great job done in the garage.

Hey mate,

Yea sweet, thanks for that.

It was the paint the shop recommended, so I ran with it

I do have all of the overalls with the hoodie, some long gloves, and a mask with a filter, look like an alien.

And i will give it some time between coats - thanks for the tip, appreciate it

So I got my body deadener painted in my tank tunnel and under my cowl....this should look after the tank....I am planning on putting it under the fairings over the wheels as well when I paint them.
I painted them before I put on my colour - rather the black get over sprayed rather than my orange get taken over. Although that didn't happen anyway. Tonight I will just go over the parts and get it all cleaned up...wipe it down. Then give it another clean with wax/grease remover and tack cloth before paint



Tank



Seat cowl

Paint is done guys! - well except the bikini fairing and frot fairing

i did the paint!!

man so stoked the way it turned out eh - i HAVE got 2 runs in the clear though :( :( one on the back/bottom of the headlight bucket (not visible on when mounted to bike) and one on the left hand side of the seat cowl - but once again, that will be covered by the seat pad...so I'm fair stoked. Considering this is the first time i have ever done this before - let alone a 4 stage paint process including pearl.

Pictures time -

So this was my backyard paint booth, covered all around and on the floor with tarps - air tight




The Tank, Cowl and headlight bucket painted - oh so damn pretty, in the light it POPS!






...and the tank with its clothes on!


and a group shot of the kit!


next - is frame work. I am going to build a seat pan, some mounts for my cafe seat and make a "fender eliminator" - basically some aluminium mounted on the frame - this will give me the "clean look" but at the same time, covering my engine and under my seat from the mud etc being flicked up from the road.

I know this is tolate for your use but I watched a painter,they get runs also but they know the fixes,having a can ready with paint thinner, just swapped out the cans on the gun ,shot over it and the run blended into the paint.

thanks yokesman - how would that work? so for instanse:

i have a run in the clear, i what, spray the run with some straight thinners---then continue?

I am trying to ascertain which tail light to buy - i was looking for a nice flush mount round light that isnt some plastic P.O.S. but yea, proving harder these days

I found these two - all be it not flush mounted, they look nice, which one do you guys think?
