If you end up not using the stock controls, let me know. I'm trying to track down the right side control housing. Thanks.

NIce... especially like that front fairing. Anyone knows who makes? Wouldn't mind one of those for my project.

if you have the funds, definately get them powder coated. Much more resistant to scratches and damage and they look really nice. If you strip, prep and get them ready, its not even usually that expensive to get them powder coated.

Another option is to simply have the wheels, hubs, and laces all powder coated put together already. Get them balanced and trued first, then have them sandblasted and powder coated all as one unit. I did that on two of my bikes and have been very happy. Only cost $160 for both wheels. Only downside is you cannot true them anymore after that but how often do you do that anyways?

Iím doing the pipes and a few other bits so I think I may do mate, but not the spokes it will be way to expensive Iím better of just buying new ones online and just doing the rims. 75$ for new ones so not bad. This project is starting to take its financial toll lol

So a quick update:

After getting the polishing wheel set up and realising most of the parts I was going to polish are way to scratched and would look way cooler powdered I have decided to get the little odds and ends I was going to polish will now get the powder lol. Have also ordered new spoke kit as would cost alot less then getting the spokes powdered and am waiting for the seat to dry so i can upload pics of the finished product, fingers crossed itís done by Friday. (as the mofo has had it for two weeks and all the tard had to do was glue and lock it in place)
