Brothers you are all too kind, thank you so much for the compliments however a lot of the credit goes to Brother casi85 as well, he has a very nice vision for what he would like for this motorcycle and has truly been offering absolutely beautiful parts to work with!

She is a shining star, I hope a lot of people will enjoy getting to see her at the shows!

This photo shows the handle bars that Brother casi85 had rechromed for the Bridgestone!



I installed the triple trees with their bearings, the newly chromed handlebars with their clamps, and the speedometer bracket to the frame. I will have to take the frame outside to get some really nice photos however this is how she looks now!

I got a lot of work done on the Bridgestone today, I sprayed the final silver basecoat and clearcoat on the chain guard and tail light bracket and I was also able to spray the black on the speedometer, the front engine mounts, toolbox, center stand, and the swingarm. The paint is still drying on these parts so I will add photos of them in the morning.

After I painted today I filled the forks with oil and started assembling more of the front end components and was able to install the front forks, springs, spacers, boots, lower triple tree chrome collars, head light mounts, new front reflectors, the newly chromed headlight bucket, the axle, etc. to the motorcycle.

Here are a few photos of how she is resting this evening!

That front end is coming together nicely! Can't wait to see the stainless front fender all polished up on there.

The parts that I painted yesterday dried enough to handle so I bolted the swingarm to the frame and assembled the newly chromed tail light housing to the bracket and mounted it to the fender. I also started polishing the tail light lens and mounted it as well.

I am planning on trying to finish the sanding and polishing of the front brake plate and hub within the next couple days so that I can build the front wheel and mount it as I would like it in place for measurements as I reshape and restore the stainless steel front fender.
