The job this weekend: Sand blasting and paint work of the side and center stand:
The goal for this weekend is to finish off the sand blasting of the frame. In addition I did the sand blasting of the switches. I might do the paint work of the switches tomorrow.
nice winter project, removal off rust and old paint.
In spite of all the warnings I have done the cut off. Please see the pictures before and after. The swingarm is also sandblasted to add a better grip for the paint.
The left picture where the swingarm is marked with a tape is before the cut off and the other one with tape is after the “crime”
Due to unoriginal weels there is almost no clearence to the swinging arm. Can I cut off about 6-7 mm on each side without doing any harm ?
Piece of cake, the engine is out of the frame:
The work has started. Disassembling of the GT. A lot of work to be done. I have to spend some more money as well. It was a good idea to get the bike inside the house. Now I can spend quality time in a warm location instead of working in a winter cold garage.
