It's looking pretty good so far. Need to get a good straight edge to check everything get it all lined up and spacers sorted. Looks like the standard swing arm will be fine but will need caliper mounting sorting.
Another piece of the jigsaw done. This cover had been sprayed (badly) with satin black and the sanding marks could be seen. It has now been stripped of paint then 1200 grade wet & dry to clean it up 7 finally sprayed with Simoniz gloss black engine enamel.
Standard...ish but with non standard colours. Should be collecting the frame & wheels from powder coating later this week so can get started putting the rolling chassis back together then rebuilt the motor.
I’m usually a hardcore hybrid man, but my F2 is completely standard apart from KR paint, Triumph calipers and Microns.
Now I’ve done as close to standard, as I can do; it’s back to the sky’s the limit LOL.
I’ll see how it goes with the standard bars as I can always change it later. I’ve had 9 Lcs and Ypvs so far. Currently riding a Vfr800 as my main bike. This one will have none standard pipes and a rather extravagant Metmachex arm when it’s ready to collect.
I'm sort of working to a plan but getting a few bits done most days. I'd like to get a rolling chassis somewhere near before really starting on the engine. It's all the little cleaning and repainting jobs that take so long. Not building a show bike just a very clean & tidy bike. Waiting for the swing arm so I can put the suspension and wheels in. I'm going to hang on to the Mt front and rear ends for now as I might use them on another one later.
Went to Triple S in Bingley this time for Powder Coating as he only does bike parts and has been doing it for over 30 years. I have the final colour scheme planned but I’m not revealing it until the end 😁
