I agree, that is a great idea Brother beachcomber so I also edited my original post and added the colors and their part numbers.

Thank you Brother Habanero52 I thought it would be very nice to have all of the beautiful engines here on dotheton showcased in one place togethor for everyone to enjoy! Most of you already know but for the record Brother Habanero52 is the owner of the first CB450 engine in my original post, I also added the link to the full engine build on my original post.

Agreed. It'd be rad if we could get a small write up on the application of paint, etc.

I painted my motor last year with hi temp paint I got from Pep Boys (don't remember the brand) and I didn't use any primer or clear. I'm not even sure if they make hi temp clear. I used the heat of the motor to 'cook' the paint. Long story short, it didn't hold up well at all...
That's not an oil leak. The motor's just sweating from all the horsepower.

How do you strip the chrome off to paint?

I'm having the same issue right now with my head. It was to much work to have it only last one season. :(

I really like the look of polished aluminum and black. Here are a couple of pics of my past bikes, KZ650 and CB400T.

remember how it used to be !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Built in 1982 for Yamaha Europe by John Reed [ aka Uncle Bunt ] won loads of prestige events [ Best Bike - Oakland ] and was retired until 2 years ago when it was decided to refurb it to see how it would do against today's machines. It will be finished by November 2011.
 
I don't think many of the styling cues will find their way onto MY TR1 !!

What do we think? A bit OTT. ;)
