    update:

    almost all parts are sanded and ready for spraying

    they found my oil leak..minor repar

    they replaced my left fork tube (it was pitted and leaked like a sonofabitch)

    i ordered a new fairing to replace the scratched/broken one i had

    i ordered a dark smoked windscreen (the one i had was spraypainted and worn)

    im polishing the lip when i get the bike back and the plastics are away for painting

    im powdercoating the inner of the wheel black

    ordering 2 new BT-014's

    im sure there is more but i cant think of it right now

    it should look decent for a 93 model when i get it finished :bigthumb:

    am i really sinking too much money into this thing?

    i only paid $1000 for it...it was worth 2 atleast even with 36000 miles on it

    i dont plan on making any money when/if i ever get rid of it...so why worry?

    i also put on some new progrip gel grips...

    here is a pic of my dark smoke windscreen...though its hard to see in the bag

    got the new bt014 on the front wheel today...and got the wheel all the way back on the bike..turned it around on the lift and took off the rear wheel and disassembled it..

    should have about 6-7 days into cleaning this one up...after that, all im waiting for is the man to paint my plastic...then i'll be riding again!

    oh and im gonna buy some blue headlights :cool:
