XS update March 22
Filler applied on the frame after hours of sanding the tough epoxy primer down.
(notice the custom-made bodywork on the background i'll be running a huge formula one style spoiler on the rear, had some ground-effect skirts made, thinking about neon lights under the frame..duh !)
Did some polishing on the stainless steel pipes, and yes it is crappy welding there, gotta start practicing at some point..)
The shifter knob in primer
Today`s best part was playing with colours and flakes, still figuring out the right combo.
I really like some 70`s colours, it's gotta be over the top since this bike doesn't fit any nowadays standard, it`s not a bobber, racer, bratstyle, i don't run a harley engine or triumph pre-unit and its gotta be something more than "just another XS".
It's mine !
Besides, i never fitted in any standard whatsoever...
Hope to get the frame in colour this week, start assembling, making wiring, meanwhile applying pressure on the guys to prep my gastank and fender and get the final paintjob..
