Cerakoted the subframe, headlight, and rearsets. Think im gonna do stripes inline with the cross brace to the frame. Instead of the A-symmetrical idea.

Slapped some cerakote on the tank, cowel and fender. I love it, I tried armor black at first but just wasn't enough contrast, just boring tbh. I used Tungsten. The battery came in and I will start on the rr and wiring soon.

Got my pictures updated. They should all be there now. hopfully no more complaining about photobucket, I'm using Flickr now...


Battery, RR, and fuse box are installed. and a little bit of wiring came in going to start fabbing some struts for the front fender. I don't know what bike the fender came off of. It was big and ugly and fit a hayabusa. So I drew a shape I liked and cut it down.

Got the majority of it wired today. Since components are in different places than normal. I had to disect the wireing harness and basically run one wire at a time. The turn signals are a little fast cause I have LEDS, so I ordered a 7 pin relay off ebay.

Thanks kamza hope it helps.

Motor is in. Hmm ok
1. Needs new water pump
2. Alternator needs rewiring
3. Needs new Clutch cover... Is this thing plastic?!?!
4. Crack in valve cover

I've decided to stop there till I get those fixed. It's not seized up and I'll test the starter motor and compression first.
