You my friend are VERY Talented!! I am stunned at how well this is all looking. I learned about zinc plating through this post. You make my new(ish) bike look OLD!

I can't wait to see more.

Could you tell us how you restored the fuel tank?

1st / water cleaning, dish soap, baking soda and a green scotch brite sponge
2nd / sanding under water with body sandpaper, grain 120, then 254, 400, 600, 800, 1200, 2000, 4000
in 3rd / light heating with a heat gun, just to revive the color and make it shine.

the days pass and the restoration of the motorcycle is still on stand-by, as long as I have not integrated my house and my workshop or I should start work soon.

small reception of the day, the stickers for the radiator fenders and those that will take place on the fork with the old KYB logo.
