Decided to throw a couple pictures up of the teardown of my 99 V Star 650 Custom. Turning it into a bobber. Still have to go buy the rear fender blank and customize it, turn signals, seat/pan/springs and make my own mounting for it, bars, mirrors and powder coating.
Powder coating both wheels (rims/spokes/hubs), both crankcase covers, both fork tubes, triple tree and risers all in flat black.
Going to paint the differential, rear brake drum and components, head covers, battery box and tool box cover, handlebar control housing covers all in flat black.
Was thinking of doing the tank and rear fender a flat black underneath, then a matte grey on top. Then scuff it up for the black comes through a bit. Not sure yet though on that.
Oh and, that picture with the peeled paint on the tank...Ya my bad. During a summer road trip, damn gas went under my directions I taped to the tank.
