I did all the work myself except painting the frame and recovering the seat- BTW-Renazco Racing did an excellent job!

Here's the frame to my $20K motorcycle in the back of my $300.00 car...



I shudder to think what it would cost to pay a shop to do a complete tear-down just to paint the frame...it took me something like 4 months of evenings and weekends! Of course I was in an arm sling for a month of that due to shoulder surgery. Total PITA, but at least I can ride now (very gently).
Yikes. Glad it wasn't any worse. You did a great job on the bike.

Beautiful pics everyone.
