Thanks for the compliments everyone!

As we say in the pits... "it looks fast on the stand" nothing left now but to go wring the piss out of it and see what its worth on the track  :o

The owner has only had it a few months and has put 4000 miles on the clock, so there has been a bit of wringing.  He has 3 other bikes that are "daily" drivers, so I presume he doesn't find it particularly disagreeable!

You don't know how good that sounds... I was thingking... "man I hope that gets to go play and not collect dust" Sooo good to hear the owner is putting miles on it.  ;D

I'm a little late in the game to view this and reply but I am blown away!  Thank you so much for posting the progress and tidbits on all the custom work.  You are a true craftsman. Fit and finish on this thing is nothing short of immaculate and loving all the proper 2T goodies. Great to hear 4000 miles have been logged already because as beautiful as this thing is, it looks like a proper and very tasteful RD.  Good on ya!  Ring a ding ding waaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!  ;D

A little die grinder action.
And a trip through the glass beader.
And done.  I will make some dies to form up some stone screens later.  The screens will get epoxied in on the inside of the backing plate after it gets painted.
Love that! Have thought about getting a sand blaster to do just that for my parts. Looks so good.

Wow, what a great journey that is, really inspires me to take my time and not "just get it done". Bravo, just bravo.

such a beautifully finished build, Id enjoy opening the door to my garage everyday if that was parked behind it.
first cafe build was an incomplete learning experience, more of a test run for the real thing FRANKENHONDA II
