Starting me a winter project, this one isn't a full build but rather an upgrade on the 76 Ltd I bought. I started taking it back to stock when we found that some tabs had been cut off. decided to clean up the silly things and add some of our products to make daily rider. Started by selling off the wheels to a long time customer which resulted in me really regretting it after he cleaned them up and brought them back for the install on his bike. Here's a pic of what he brought back


When I saw this it got me thinking about doing a bike in a similar color. Hit my painter up and gave him my goal and here's the base color he chose, just a quick spray out for me to start working on the details on my end.


I'll try to do weekly updates as we move along.

Beautiful work Les. The pic with just the base color looks to have a rust colored tone. Once striped it looks to have a bit more brown in it. I realize my screen won't be color true. The wheel color looks just like a House of Kolor paint called Amber Whiskey I was just considering. Very sharp.

Very slick Les. Are you the CNC operator or do you contract the work?

All me, I do the programming and machining right here in my shop. Use Millwrite V6 for engraving, Centroid CNC and BobCad for programming.

Okay, update. Been a busy 6 months since I started this build and have made zero progress on my end but did get to pick my paint up yesterday. Here's a couple pics. The black stripes on the tank are actually pearl purple, looks black till you see it in the sun! .
In the coming weeks we'll be wrapping up a large job we have and I'll be in a position to put some time into this build so be patient, it will get finished.

Dave, we may very well be able to make a trip up around early sept. Right now we are still getting additional orders on top of that big job we landed last year so we're still putting in the big hours. Not complaining, business good and keeps growing but I'm ready to play with some bikes and have a few drinks with the buddies.
