Cool videos of your garage, Toecutter...! This gives me an idea: we could create some special member-forum called "Show us your garage", something like that.
Could be interesting

Cleaned up some covers , a luck they were just lightly rusted , it came off prety well. Bought a chain set , a pair of oil seals for the front fork and some rvs inbus bolts to finish the covers.
They are not in the best condition as the chrome is very old but its good enough for me I have these as spare ones

Did some more work today.

Tried to polish the crap out of this with sandpaper, steelwool and polichrome. The reserve part above isnt polished, only did a few strokes with sandpaper to see the result.


Before :

After :

i'm happy with the result but very clean and stunning this is not....I cannot get the lil dents out, maybe when i have a polishmachine it will go away Very Happy

Measured and sawed the bolts for the cap , i went for RVS bolts looks tighther that way.


thats it for today i guess , i wanted to start on the brakes but i'm feeling a little tired.

Yes, I think you need a polishing machine and the (green/brown) paste, to get the perfect ''bling-bling finish''.

Yep , thx for the nice comments, took me quite a while to get it clean again. As 650zed mentioned , for the "real deal" i need at least a polishing tool Wink

For this, I simply use a drill (boor). This way, I can access nearly every place, using a small tissue polishing disc. The only thing is to take care that the drill doesn't warm up too much and eventually burns, as the polishing is only effective at fast rotations. So I use an old drill and take a small brake every 2 minutes, to let it cool down a bit. It works quite well.

Keep up the good work

Further plans are to get a nos wiring cable and original handlebar set. I've ordered Goodridge stainless brake cables for the F2. New gascable, clutchcable and so on...A new chainset has arrived too. Then i want to paint over my tank (flat black again , love it) and get new sidepanels. New brake oil in the forks and a new set of oilseals. A new exhaust system (MAC). Cleaning parts in general.

Thats what i can think of right now study cheers Very Happy

Okey. good plans.

See that you removed the panels for polishing. Are there gaskets in between and are you using new ones?

Yep good call Hofman. I forgot to mention that i will order a full gasket kit for the motor. Though i'm not planning to break down the whole engine cause it runs smootly. Only the gaskets for the teardown parts will be used. They look fine (pretty much new) but i'm sure its the best thing to do. Cool

BTW the new sidepanels i was talking about are not the polished ones , there just the side ones that go over the oil reservoir and the electical system. Cheers Very Happy
