My New Baby....ZX10

So I just picked up a zx10 a few nights ago. I got a really good deal on it but it needs some work. It's all cosmetic and a lot of dirt. I took some pics but it turned out to be 29 so I just added a link to my photobucket album. The major things with it are the windscreen is just a cut piece of plexi-glass so I ordered one from zero gravity. The swingarm is all scratched up so I am either gonna sand and paint or have it powder coated. I already relocated the license plate due to it being so far under the bike I couldn't see it without sitting on it. All of the covers are scuffed so I'm gonna have them powder coated to match the red inspection plate holder. The wheels will also be getting a red treatment, along with the calipers There is no chain guard or front sprocket cover which I have ordered. The shifter lever is stripped so the guy bolted it straight threw. So I am ordering the rear sets you see in the pic. It was stretched so it still has the long brake line and the axle blocks are the wrong ones. I will be getting these in red also. It has a full muzzy kit, tre, power commander, hid lights, custom ninja grips (which will be changed) and a flat black paint job. I'm sure I am forgetting stuff but I will update with pics as I change stuff and build the bike. It will definitely be getting a thorough scrub down with the fairings off and alot of other time and elbow grease. So without further ado.

So I called and got a quote today for all the parts I want powder coated and turns out the color I want is actually a difficult process. I want the anodized red look so it has to have a chrome base coat then candy red on top of that. This week I will have the swingarm redone in black because its all scuffed up. The parts I had quoted are the wheels, rear foot peg mounts and pegs, and the engine covers. I'm gonna paint the calipers black and now am thinking about having the fork tubes done the same red. Pics will follow when I start taking everything apart and going threw it.

They are speedking off of ebay. I looked at reviews and they get really good comments. Only downfall is they come from Thailand so it takes about 3 weeks to get them. They are knock offs of satos.
