Looks good! It will be a like new bike when it is back together.
The engine build is always my favorite part. My V7 Sport a number of years ago
Got a late start on work today, not much accomplished. Breather hoses run.Alternator cover cleaned and given a quickie polish.
That high volume low pressure glass bead process you use sure leaves a nice finish, very 'stock' appearance. I think the vapour blast leaves more of a shine but your finish is probably closer to the natural fresh casting.
Really liking the zinc plating. I don't recall coming across anyone else doing that during their restorations that I've seen in the past few years. What's the process? Does the zinc add thickness? Looking great as usual!
Jim/canuck750 has parts zinc-plated too. I'm only redoing what was already there - Guzzi zinc-plated all of these bits originally. Done correctly, it doesn't add thickness. Parker has done it right, I can thread nuts onto the bolts without having to chase the threads. Previous vendors got it a bit too thick. The process on my end is degrease and derust everything, plus I went over all of it with the wire wheel of my bench grinder. What Parker does? I'm guessing a stripping bath, rinse, plate, dry, box for shipment. http://www.parkermetalfinishing.com/our-services/
