Hi guys, with the (almost) completion of the work space, i spend an afternoon in the 'shop' , stripping down a few parts here and there.
As the pictures show, alot of peeling paint and rust does this baby no good. Everything wil be polished or repainted. Here are a few pics of the little progress.

Encounterd a prob with the exhaust , some of the bolts are wearing out so i need to get them out somehow. Will figureout how... The Marshall exhaust looks prety sharp but the pipes need a good cleaning.


Rust!!


More rust and a bad rear fender!


Rear tire is out and ready to get new spokes and a good ol' polishing.


Batt holder, very schmutzig!


Thats it for now folks, next update this weekend, i hope to get the front fork and other pieces out.

thanks man, the first thought is to keep her original in all her beauty , exept for a Tomaselli handlebar and maybe this kind of airfilter box! :



a good ol' breadbox Very Happy

Little update*

The electric wiring is almost stripped , found alot of bad connections and of course, more rust...

I took a few pictures to help me with the build up. Because this is the first bike i will completly dismantle , i need all the help i can get, pictures and a good ol' manual.

Some polish work, im working with sandpaper and water from 400 to 1200. (I use 280 to remove pittings and other stuff.) With every step i polish the item with alupaste and go on with sanding and so on. My last step is using a Dremel 300 for a 'clean' finish.

Its not exactly pro work but im happy with the result. here are a few pictures ;

The polishing look very nice! What's cool about polished aluminum is that, as long as you keep up with it, it will get nicer looking with each cleaning.

Shiny Side Up!

Yeah man, polished parts are indeed more oldskool , more 'real', i cant discribe it , but it works.

the Dremel tool is very handy , i ordered a flex hose and a new polish kit, waiting for the parts...

cheers

are you using normal primer and paint for those brakes?
I'll have mine powdercoated, cause I think normal paint is going to get ugly when you spill some brake fluid on the surface...

I really like your polished parts! I've started sanding and polishing some parts aswell, but I can't find any sandingpaper over P600... Where did you buy your P1200?
How much time did you spend polishing the rear hub? that's like a day work or something? :p
