I sure hope so. The paint job it had was so-so, but her prep work was horrible. I am trying to spend a LOT of time on prep. My new avatar is one of the paint schemes that I'm thinking about (THANKS CALIGONETX FOR THE PHOTOSHOP JOB!). I know that I'm really tired of all black. All I know is that you SHOULD be able to read your license in it when I'm through.

gotta agree,
doing it in situ is a new one on me
when I run stuff into the painters i remove all the bodywork,
all rubber grommets, fastners, fittings, gas cap, vents etc etc

I AM doing it in pieces. I just set the tank and tail back on the bike for the pics. Neither one of them are bolted on in the pics. I did do a little bit of the side of the fairing on the bike just because I was bored waiting for fiberglass to dry.

First, I used a plastic epoxy made by Devcon on the overlap joints. Then I used fiberglass resin and matting on the underside. It's pretty strong! I also filled the holes on the sides of the tail where the flush mount signals were and fabricated a bracket to mount them from behind the license plate.

Man I would paint that thing a variation of the original blue/white it came from the factory with......That would look sweet having a SUPER CLEAN original 7/11 air cooled running around.....Even put the factory decals back on it and clear coat over them.... That would be F'n sweet. That or the 91' 750 black/silver zebra stripe paint scheme was always one of my favorites aside from the purple pinstriping....leave that shiat off.

Cali's photochop looks good but that resembles the 86' Honda VFR paint scheme WAAAAAYY too much. This is a zuk, it needs zuk colors.
Good work, prep it well, keep it clean, lots of clear, lots of color sanding and buffing...

NAAAWWW......screw that.....keep it original. Your bodywork is in good shape. Paint it and let it live on as a true, old school muscle bike....not some junk yard looking street fighter.....(unless you are planning on stunting it...then by all means..)


I always liked this paint scheme, aside from the pink decals and purple wheels...

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out tonight when I get home tonight. I had big plans of working on it tonight, but the wife informed me that we're eating dinner with the monster-in-law tonight.

Painting it would probably be easier and cheaper, but fighters are so much fun.

Either way, you won't see many of em. Really don't see many nice, old bikes like that around. But you don't see many nice fighters either.
