Finished the F2!

Since I hit the deer in august last year, I turned it into a streetfighter for a while. Took me a while to fix the farings and finally getting it back to gether with the new gloss black paint job. I have to say, it was well worth it. This is what the bike currently looks like, but isn't the fully finished product. I'm planning on painting the whole exposed frame to flat black with some other small cosmetic changes too.

I didn't paint the bike. A friend of mine did it for me. Paid him 225 bucks for the pain t job. I did the prep and helped him out in the paint booth. but he did the painting. I learned a lot of shit from him and planning on gettin my own equipment soon to paint the gixxer.

If your close up to the paint job you can see small imperfections, but I can't expect much for paying so little for a paintjob. But if you walk 5 ft away, its very glossy. I have to still do some waxing and polishing

Heh, your friend want to work on my 750? He does nice work and the price sounds great.

Bike looks fantastic. But it is missing the rack from the deer Shoulda mounted that thing.

Thanks. Yeah, I wasn't really planning on making the bike looking this nice, but since I took the time to repair the farings and fiberglass them, my friend said he'd paint the bike for cheap. So I just went for it.

I think I'll be keeping the F2 for quite a while now.

For references, this was the streetfigther phase of the F2.
