. And what's wrong with Firestones anyway?  ;D ;D

Absolutely nothing wrong with them- if your riding a 1940's motorcycle ;)

Finally got the frame all finished with lugs in place for the seat, tank, inner rear guard, tail light, rear shocks, battery box and rear footrests. I think I'll get it sand blasted rather than rub it all back, but I'll decide on that tomorrow.[/img]]
I also got out the powdercoater and did the sidestand and the top engine mounts. I also did the original toolbox, as it was in really good shape and will look good on the bike. I'm quite happy with the results.

My brother came over today and started cleaning up the forks, ready for polishing. What a job, they were quite a mess under the paint, full of sanding marks and scratches. He still has a bit more to go but it's starting to look good. While he was doing that I powdercoated the alternator inner and outer covers, after doing a repair to the inner. It had a broken screw hole at the bottom which I welded up and machined first - damn Japanese aluminium, took a while to get it right...
We are doing the sidecovers in satin black, with polished external covers, and the main cases will be flat black, which we think will look good.[/img]]
