Finally got the tank mostly cleaned out. I like the idea of the satin black motor and polishing the covers I do have some exhaust wrap so I'll probably do that as well going to order new mirror and marker lights front and rear. Now that I have money to get it fixed up better I do happen to have a spoked wheels from a 1998 Suzuki RM 125 dirt bike that I parted out so maybe I can make them fit the rear tho I would have to make into disk brakes. May look into it a little bit since it don't take much to pull the wheels. I'm pretty sure the axle diameters aren't the same but if I swap bearing or something maybe I can make it work I would like to keep the speedometer tho. When I bring the bike back out I'll start painting some of the smaller parts.

My game plan is to do the motor satin black and polish the side covers paint the lower legs satin and the fender satin and rear fender the side covers are graphite and the carb topsnajd valve cover are graphite I'll probably let the go the tank is going vht burnt copper I've used this paint on  the rims on my car an they survived the salty winter so this paint is tough and engine enamel so should be OK if gas gets on it I have to bake the tank in the oven tho to make the paint cure to be chemical resistant  no biggy I was thinking of flipping the headlight mounts upside down to lower it also gonna move the tool bag to behind the seat like suggested reason I had it there was to cover where the Honda emblem was

Beyond all black being a major pain in the ass, no matter how nice your coatings are, in the end its going to look like you just spray bombed it..

This was powder and ceramic coated, ALL fasteners plated with Black zinc (Burbank Plating), flat black paint with flat clear... I'll never do it again, this was three + years work, if you're going to put it all that work I'd really encourage you to not use one color or it will look like you just spray bombed it.

Couldn't find a pic when this was complete, but this was close...

Yeah I think all black may be a bit much the burnt copper should stand out well with the satin black the bike when the paints done will be satin black burnt copper and graphite

If you are talking about stretching the swing arm why are you afraid to modify a tank tunnel to fit the frame? Swing arm seems way scarier to me.
