I actually got mine back from the powder coaters the other day. Took me a month and a half to smooth them out. Original clear coating was done for. All total cost me $300 for everything. Waiting to get my Forks from be rebuilt so i can reassemble the bike. Pics are before and after.

New Wheels and Tires are on Forks rebuilt. Got raped on the Forks I new I should have rebuilt them myself. But $300 later and bike is fully functional again. Next plan is to get the Silver on the Tank painted black to match the wheels. Now I have to test drive it tomorrow and give it a real good cleaning since the forks got crap on everything. Degrease it power wash and life will be good.

Few annoyances I noticed. Front Axle nut can't be torqued all the way or it causes issues with the speedo gear. The speedo gear on the left side by the disk for the brakes doesn't have the nubs to keep it in place. It seems to work fine but like I said. Couldn't torque the Axle nut all the way. Lilo blue lock tite and it shouldn't be a problem.

Awesome ... I like'em! Now get rid of those OEM shocks and replace them with a pair of Hagons ... and get those pipes wrapped in black.
