Something like that. While it doesn't appear to be much, I assure quite a bit of work went into that bike other than removing a few parts. A complete rewire from head light to tail light including a keyed marine grade ignition switch with updated blade fuse panel. Removed all switches and wiring from the bars, single cable throttle assembly, rebuilt the front end, different tail light, modified aftermarket headlight ears, etc. Visually there isn't a huge amount of changes, but all of them made a better looking bike in my eyes. I fixed a ton of the previous owners issues, and came out with a fun bike.

Can't really call it "after" since I'm not done but I'm making progress. Still need to finish the paint, clean up the engine, fab the exhaust and seat, and some other stuff.

Couldn't find anyone who'd pay a dollar each for all those old fairings?

The luggage rack went in the dumpster, it was pretty shot. And it was ugly. The Windjammer, albeit not my style, is sitting in my buddy's garage. I have a week-long road trip coming up and there's a good chance it'll be on the bike when I leave.
