Happy Thanksgiving Eve, all!

I felt restless tonight and wanted to get something accomplished, no matter how small. Remember the "R60/5" badges? I had painted them and baked them in the oven, but I hadn't decided whether or not I was going to sand the high spots off of the top to make the lettering and borders stand out again (as the stock ones do). I decided I definitely needed to do that, so I got to it.

Before:



After paint:



And now, after I sanded them.









I'm really happy with how they turned out. This certainly isn't anything that will help me get the bike started sooner, but every little bit needs to be finished and I find I can sleep better each night knowing I did something on the bike!

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
