XS750 Cafe Racer

I bought this XS750SF about 3 months ago. It's my 6th cafe racer build
I should of started taking some pics a bit sooner as the bike is just about
ready for reassembly.
I picked up the frame and wheels from the powder coaters yesterday, the
finish is great, but the masking off could have been a lot better.
These are the only pics I have of the parts before paint and polishing.

The tank was made by a local fabrication company.
I've got 2-3 days polishing to look forward to there.

The header pipes are from a Triumph Daytona they needed some collars welded on
so that they clamp into the head properly.
Also I had some link pipes made.

looks fantastic so far mate. keep us post with pictures please. It is shaping out to be on of very few nicely done xs750's. Do you have any pictures of your past builds? Were any of the part re chromed? I ask because the polish job looks awesome.
