impressive, I admire your perseverance. Looking great, as I am sure you know, a great paint job needs good prep. I like the seat too  8)

Thanks Popeye, I too have worked out the hard way, that a paint job is all about the prep. Had I not messed up previous jobs through poor preparation, I probably would have settled for less by now.

Fingers crossed the paint job comes out sweet.

Still on the to do list;
electrical tray
battery box
need to get a rear sprocket ( in not even quiet sure what rear hub I have, 4 bolt pattern)
send the cylinder and heads away
get the exhaust customised a little to tuck it away more.
Make Chain guard
Anodise top triple and switch gear
Brake lines
Powder coat frame

Lol shes a few breaks away yet.

Right now Im trying to clean up this abortion of a garage I have here

Whoa, the seat looks great! Body work can be a brute, way to keep at it.

I was looking through some of the older build photos there is definitely going to have to be some customisation of the exhaust system.

Unfortunately I will have to get someone else to do that.

It looks bad ass, low and staunch. But its going to be impractical when riding, one of the things I wanted to do with this build was put function before form.

Its difficulty I find that perfect balance. I want Frankenhonda to be a bike I can ride all day still enjoying it. Not like the R1 where Im just about crippled after 3 hrs on the highway.
