    That looks awesome. Another option is soda blasting. That’s how I did my last set of cases. It gave a really great result, though not as nice as vapor. Cheaper though..

    I just added another bike, a 1995 Moto Guzzi 1100 Sport to the stable. Both of my barns are full now, so I either need to add a third barn, or I need to stop adding bikes? I think I’ll add a third barn! :)

    Next time build a bigger barn to hold all the bikes in the first two barns.
    then you can start filling the first two all over again :jack

    What are the measurements of this barn? I'm looking to add a shed to our property and this looks like just about the right size.

    Thanks!

    This building is 10’6”x24’. I only wish that the width was 12’ wide. The building was advertised as being 12’x24’ The actual outside to outside dimensions are 11’x24’, so just make sure that you measure any already fabricated building yourself before buying it. I also added a 3/4” layer of plywood on top of the 5/8” factory floor in order to really strengthen the floor.

    I have been talking to Shed Depot out in Burlington about building me a 12x16. I'll make sure to ask if that's the interior or exterior dimension. Thanks man!

    Also, I'll keep an eye out for Guzzi 1100 Sports out on the road and say hi if I see you. Looks like you have a couple!

    Makes it easier to sweep the floor and economy of space! There is never enough space!

    I’m planning a barn/garage build from scratch. Those post mounts are awesome for the drill/Grindr. Did you fabricate those yourself ? Commercially available?

    Just welded them up from what ever waste that was lying around.

    The drill press was actually a floor mounted unit - machined a length of pipe to match the original cast base, fitted four grub screws - you can just see two of them in the pic, they lock the shortened post in position.
