impressive, I admire your perseverance. Looking great, as I am sure you know, a great paint job needs good prep. I like the seat too  8)

Thanks Popeye, I too have worked out the hard way, that a paint job is all about the prep. Had I not messed up previous jobs through poor preparation, I probably would have settled for less by now.

Fingers crossed the paint job comes out sweet.

Still on the to do list;
electrical tray
battery box
need to get a rear sprocket ( in not even quiet sure what rear hub I have, 4 bolt pattern)
send the cylinder and heads away
get the exhaust customised a little to tuck it away more.
Make Chain guard
Anodise top triple and switch gear
Brake lines
Powder coat frame

Lol sheís a few breaks away yet.

Right now Iím trying to clean up this abortion of a garage I have here

Whoa, the seat looks great! Body work can be a brute, way to keep at it.

I was looking through some of the older build photos there is definitely going to have to be some customisation of the exhaust system.

Unfortunately I will have to get someone else to do that.

It looks bad ass, low and staunch. But itís going to be impractical when riding, one of the things I wanted to do with this build was put function before form.

Itís difficulty I find that perfect balance. I want Frankenhonda to be a bike I can ride all day still enjoying it. Not like the R1 where Iím just about crippled after 3 hrs on the highway.

So the weather was clear enough for my old man to attempt spraying the tank and seat.

The paint consisted of a white base coat, a pearl and clear coat

First two photos are of the base coat second two are with the pearl

The rest are after the clear coats.

Iím going to have to wait another 3 weeks before Iím home to put them on the bike. Iím hoping it comes up mean after adding the decals and newly upholstered seat
