Wow that all looks stunning. Very pleased to have found this thread. Fastline parts is about 15 mins from my house.

I think I'll be making some use of their services in the future.

20 minutes from mine as well spudscustoms, I'm near Chorley, where are you?

When you go, ask to see Graham, Mr enthusiastic is the best way to describe him.    :)

They do blasting, and various plating as well as powder coating, a great Custom bike one stop shop.

Just got some piccies from Fastline, he has finished the wheels, they look great.     :)


I'll post some close ups when I pick them up in the next few days, but before then, here are the ones he sent

Wow those wheels came out absolutely stunning, you mind me asking how much it cost to get them done.

Your just down the road from me, I'm in Adlington, between Chorley and Horwich.

I'm finally putting the finishing touches to my dream garage, it's been a good while coming, and I'm looking forward to no more working outside or stealing one week night a week or the occasional weekend working on my project bike at a mates unit.

Very nice results! Did you apply some clear spray on the wheels to preclude future rust (especially on the inner surface and spokes)? Does anyone in the USA know if this service is widely available?

About £100 for the wheels spudscustoms, final figure may be slightly more but only a few quid more. I'm in Coppull by the way.

Graham at fast line did apply some clear lacquer to stop future rusting. It won't last forever, but it will last until I get them stripped down over winter and get the hubs and rims painted black and rebuild the wheels with new stainless spokes.

Well a weekend cleaning the engine and it's starting to look good, The paint on the crankcases has come off in places and I would like to get the clutch lever arm re-plated, but I'm unsure how to get it out.

I disassembled the starter motor as the alloy ends and steel body, could do with a spruce up. I'll get the ends aqua blasted and re-spray the steel part. I'll also get Graham at Fastline to re-plate the long bolts that hold the starter together.

I know it won't be immaculate but you could spend ages (and a lot of money chasing  the last bits of cleaning and trying to make it concourse), I just want it looking good and use it for every day riding.

I'm getting a bit impatient and want to start getting it built.   >:(

You might notice the red mark on the engine number plate, that was blood after I got my little finger trapped between the starter gear and the clutch basket.   :-[  ::)  :'(

and the starter casings, plus a couple of brackets which I'll get re-plated

Looking good dude

shame about those scabby area's on the crank cases, I've got some wheel silver paint that might be a fairly close match, if you want to try it for colour match then just shout up, wouldn't of thought it would be too difficult to give the scabby area's a quick sand n skotch then a quick waft from the spray can if its a match. The area's to paint aren't really that visible so it wont matter too much if its not a direct match.

its going to look proper mint tho by the time you've had all this blasting and plating done.
