Well here is one of the ultimate challenges .The “Resurrection Detail” Mike heard about me from Ron & seen Dave’s bike . So I called to see the bike @ the Mechanic. He said “EH throw a little wax on it & it has a little rust. . . RIGHT! Upon seeing the bike I asked him if this is a little rust .What is a lot ? Clear coat baked off ,so dead it makes water spots Orange chrome(rust ) & just a Hot ugly mess.I talked to Mike & he said he wanted to go for it .sentimental Value & its cheaper than a new bike. SO I commissioned my Neighbor Mr.T to do the paint work”Luxury Blue”. & stripped the bike down. as I came across things that needed some help I ordered them the Fender skirt the emblems for the tour pack reflectors for the bags… Keeping the bike Stock ,True restoration stuff here.
Always up for a challenge I say. This was very rewarding for me in that Mike wanted to do the best we can do ( within reason) due to time constraints I had to break it down into 2 parts Joanne & Mike’s Vacation .(Ya can’t do the Tail of the Dragon without your bike) SO, Stay tuned for part 2
