I have been working on restoring several different parts for the Bridgestone, today I finished the final smoothing of the front forks, installed the new fork seals, cleaned the fork springs and boots, restored the metal boot cups, and sprayed the silver basecoat on the fork lowers.

I am waiting to finish all of the silver parts before I clearcoat them however this photo shows how the forks look this evening.

Now how is it that a bike which is nearly 41 years old has parts that look 10 times better than the parts on my 2003 motorcycle. You truly make this old bike look better than new again!

I have been working on restoring a lot of the small parts for the Bridgestone and have several pieces in primer, these photos show the speedometer bracket and the rear brake stay.





Today I also got the frame sitting on the bike table, a couple of the small pieces for the lower triple tree are out for chroming so I can not permanently fasten the front end yet however I set it on the frame to see how she looks and to keep it protected.

 8) Looking good! Can't wait to drop the parts off to the Chrome shop which should be this week coming up. Also just received word that the jugs/pistons/rings are in the shop getting Nikasel coated. Should have those back in your hands in 2 weeks time!

That is great news on the cylinders Brother and I can not wait to see her with all of the new chrome mounted!

I clearcoated a lot of the silver parts for the Bridgestone today and they came out even prettier than I had hoped, the parts are curing now so I will take photos and add them here tommorow!

out of curiosity what has been your results with sharkhide?  Bad memory but assume this is the same stuff that was mentioned after bead blasting alum?  No yellowing or issues on a hot motor/cylinder jugs?
