Good color to use, (silver) did you decide on the plastics?
Hey 22many! Yeah, I decided to make her look like a 2000 model. Going with red. I went back and forth mentally between the stock white and the red but in the end, I think red just looks right on a Honda dirt bike.

The reassembly slowly begins.



Couple of pics for Christian.



Are these the angle you needed?

Another new part.

thanks man!

hey bruce!!!!!!!!!!

nice red tank man awesome

hey yeah that's the angle of the pic...its a little blurry but it works!

what I noticed when taking a look at my rear end(jaja) is that the swingarm looks like its bent to the left, in other words its not symetrical as the right side has more of an inward angle as it goes aft towards the wheel

yours looks exactly the same so thanks so much...

awesom frame color and cherry red tank! man!

sexy

cheers

Yeah, sorry for the blurry. I was kinda in a hurry and wasn't real steady with the camera. I'll try to not let that happen in the future.

The kickstand looks great. Had I said something about it?

One thing you need to change is that dam PURPLE shock spring. I have a couple yellow ones laying about if you'd like one.

Ya know, if I would have stayed with white, I would have went with the purple. I actually like it. Maybe it's just notalgia since the '96 I bought new had it. You know what Honda actually called that purple? Uranus violet.

I saw you're doing your top end again. You poor fooker. lol. Well, one thing's for sure, you're getting educated on xr600s! When it's all said and done you're gonna be a guru on these things.
