Spot the difference... (yes, the z4's pointing the other way!)







Note:

New, shorter fork stanchions
Headlight brackets
Indicators
Gaiters removed
Fork legs, yokes, and rear caliper carrier now bare ally
Discs cleaned up and new fixings.
SP3 footrests with pillion pegs.
Black plug caps instead of red ones!

At least the front end doesn't look like a black hole now  :smiley:

You can't see:

Electrical rewire of front end
New switches
FAC dampers in forks
New headlight
New brake pads, wheel bearings and steering head bearings

Before pic for contrast! This pic actually does not begin to show how horrible it was... all that black paint on everything was thick, gloopy and very soft.

I think I'm pretty much done cosmetically... I don't want to make her look any newer - just maintenance and positively promoting patina from here on...

Hi Stu, I bought the same handlebar switches last summer! (Great minds...) They are bound to be better than the originals.  At this point I have a naked frame and boxes. Slowly accumulating parts. I really like the red with gold accents on your bike. Nice work and inspiring for me. :thumb:

"Not quite" riding season yet here in Ottawa. View is from my front door just now. About 80-90 cm snow accumulation on the front yard. Looks like we'll get about 10cm today.

The bike looks great Stu.  Motorcycles are always either getting better or getting worse.  Yours is getting much better.
