Electrolysis seemed to have worked (first time doing it) now to clean it up, put some heat paint on it and wrap it with heat wrap (Classic cafe racer look)

Their jig to cut down the rear frame was genius. The clip ons are a good choice. Sonic dad kept Em up right. It's ok but I like the lower look. Can't wait to see the finished product

Tank is now sealed on the inside, that tank sealer from kbs seemed to have done a good job and left a nice shiny silver look
