Default Finally Finished!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I bought this beauty from a tow yard in May and worked all summer on it and spent my children's inheritance, but I finally finished. I knew I was done when I put my Racing Woody decal on.
Some stuff I had to do: replaced subframe; new OEM tank; new in-tank fuel filter; new plastics (ebay/china); adjustable levers; new fuel pressure regulator; new radiator cap; new spark plugs (ain't cheap); replaced oil and coolant; new battery; had seats reupholstered; new undertail; replaced chain slider; replaced front wheel/tire and rotors; new Jardine exhaust (love it); new handlebars; new pegs; new this and new that etc, etc, yada yada.

Here are some before, during, and after pics.

Love that Honda Racing Woody!

Nice. Looks brand new! I'm in the middle of a rebuild to and had to replace a lot of the same parts. Seeing this makes me wish my parts were here i got ebay plastics also.
Great job.

I actually like the old plastic that had green in it. Why did you get rid of them?

What a difference. Your effort has really paid off well. For whatever reason every time I look at the old paint job a Jeff Foxworthy joke comes to mind

Wow! At first I thought the first picture was the new bike!

Looks awesome though! Can't wait to get to work on mine this winter.

That looks great. You did a very good job. The red color scheme looks sharp.

Thanks guys. The green flame looked waaaaayyyy better in pictures and the tank had to good holes in it with bondo. I was torn betwee the red/black color scheme and the white/red. I really like the red too. Now that it's done I'm probably going to sell it. My wife wants to ride but not on this one. She wants me to buy a harley. I guess I'm ok with that too.
