I did all the work myself, except for mounting the new tires and the Ceramic coating on the exhaust. Everything else was done on a very tight budget: I got all my paint at wholesale due to being a 20 year customer at my paint supplier. Alot of parts were aquired through Ebay and the rest I spent a great deal of time scouring websites to find the lowest price possible before making the purchase.
Bottom line turned out to be around 3K, and time wise - I spent 6 weeks total getting all the components rebuilt, refinished, and reassembled. I spent four weeks getting the frame, wheels, and other things painted in Black Chrome, but that process failed at the final step, so I went with a black over that that looks very trick in the sun. I spent 6 days on complete assembly from the frame up, followed by 4 VERY intense days of bodywork fitment and paint. I placed the last pieces on Thursday night, and rode it on Friday the 20th to Laguna Seca at 5 am.
It was an arduous task, but knowing the final result would be a great ride and make for some good conversations kept me motivated enough to work every night till 2-3 am just to make the deadline.
damn, thats awesome. I wish I had time to do half of the stuff that you did. I definately think that the way you went about getting parts was the best way possible, if your not in a rush to get them.
I hope your enjoying it now that its all done!!
