Joe,

I realized I was going to be short on the black powder to do the entire job so I ordered a bunch this morning. I already have the tracking number and it's due delivery Wednesday by 10 am. In the mean time, I started with some of the smaller parts that I do have enough powder for.















I know you were worried about this piece, but it came out perfect.



When the powder arrives Wednesday, I'll start on the frame and subframe. I already have them degreased and cleaned, ready for blasting.

Joe,

I got the package today. One of the keys fit the steering head lock and I got it out no problem. I have all of the smaller parts finished and the larger parts are stripped and ready for blasting. I plan to coat the frame, subframe and rack parts Saturday morning.

Here are pics of the progress.











And for all the folks who say powder is thick and obscures the details. This is two coats, a base color and a clear topcoat. You can still easily see the roundels.

Joe, my part is finished. It's up to you now.



For every person who says powdercoat is too thick and covers the VIN. I wish I had a nickle for every time I've read on the internet that you won't be able to read it after coating. It's the person and the equipment, not the process to blame. Number partially obscured for Joe's privacy.

Whoa waco

If the rest of the bike looks as deluxe as this powder job looks, this will be one sweet ride! I could never show these photos in my garage, my GS would sue me for neglect. I like the grey instead of the yeller, keep it coming.

Just a thought, you've got the green monolever output seal in, not the brown Paralever seal. Make sure the rebuilder has caulked up the breather 'v' at the top of the seal.
