correction; since the bike is ridden in all weather conditions etc; (trailerdgixx6 is going to keep it in his garage, around the corner from where I live, thanks my bud!) all the stickers will be under a clearcoat

only trim covers. I need the left side inner trim for the instrument cluster(missing.) The rightside houses all the electronics so thats a plus. I can do without it for a while.

Just dreading the whole paint part of the build. Im not a fan of prep and paint. All in good time though.

Dunno. Need to find time to prep and paint. Im staying later at work to try to work through some issues and get some of my pay back after BMW raping us.

1) prep and paint fairings( only a few areas are getting a second color of white. I will be using a clearcoat because it will see nasty weather. the stickers will be under the clear coat to prolong life.

2) clean forks

3) paint front wheel

4) swap rear braided brake line for a front one, make a bracket

5) brackets for the wiring on the right upper

6) figure out why its not starting now

7) mod the exhaust can

8) replace the missing trunk lock or make a hidden release and cover the hole

9) rework the rear undertail to my liking and paint

10) cut the clip ons to fit and buy some grips

11) tires front/rear(disregarding rear brakes for now)

12) Patrick and the guys at Motorcycles Unlimited to look it over, laugh and adjust the suspension to me


Thats about it. Outside of painting not too much. It does need spark plugs and mirrors but other then that its coming along. W the time maybe next month but I dont see that happening as of yet.

Ok I got over the fear of body work today and started preping the plastics for primer. I have all the rear sections ready for primer(four pieces, minus the undertail) and the lower left piece is halfway done. I need to go back over it to clean up all the aggressive sanding I needed to do.

I promise the paint wont be perfect; Im not lookin for perfect paint because this bike will be nicked, dropped, hopefully stolen and recovered a few times so we can kill/put thieves in jail.

As for the rear turn signals, I took a good look at them today while I was sanding and painting the metal support. I decided splitting the inside of the light w a divider was overkill, especially when one led would light up the side unused lenses for turn signals... and it works great!!!!!

The lines between the upper and side/side will be painted yellow and white respectively I think

Matt, I was thinkin today, if you do any accents they ought to all be the same color, all silver or all white, the different colors kinda make it look slapped together only my opinion. I also thought that if you did the yellow high gloss and the other colors flat, it'd be pretty cool, just throwin it out there. Either way thing is the man

Depending on where I put the lines for the white rear cap it will intersect the rear light accordingly. There is a rear trim that goes between the upper and lower lense and encircles it; so painting that part will be easy. The division between the left and right lower tail light lense is apart of the lense itself(visible in pic)

Ok.... all but three panels and the tank are prepped for primer.


As for the headlight.... I was swapping over the inners when I decided to polish the bmw bezel. Well apparently orange clean strips cheap chrome. Does it did. So what do I do? I did break a tab on it, I hope it stays.... but now the sucker glows!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looky VVVVVVVVVVVv
