Strip is now completed, parts are taken to blaster. After he is done his job it is time for powder coat.

I was thinking red (RAL 3003) for frame and swingarm. Rest of the blasted parts going to get black powder coat. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to paint bodywork also...
I've started to worry if summer is coming too fast. :oops:

Got parts back from powder coat.
I like red paint, black not so sure. I thought it was black, but it isn't. My parts are something called black brown. All I can blame is myself, accidentally picked wrong color. :oops:

Very, very nice :nod: It's great to see a 'proper' job performed with care & skill.

BTW what handlebars is it wearing & are you going to be sticking with them? They look to be more high rise than most of the flat bars fitted.

Bar is LSL Flat Track and I'm going to stick with them.
I'm pretty short rider and like to have handlebars close to my upper body. LSL Flat Track bars does that job better than my previous bars have done.

Great Job!
Just one question, have the wheel base increased with this swingarm?
