    Finished for tonight ! Still have some more polishing to do but I am pleased with how much better the motor looks after wet sanding and polishing [​IMG][​IMG]

    It needed it after sitting in the garage in pieces for so long. It was scratched and oxidized. I could have probably wet sanded a little more but more before polishing but it 90 percent better. I think the black is going to look good with the dark red frame [​IMG]

    Tins are going out for paint first week of April. We are planning on doing a road trip up to Eugene Oregon to drop them off and discuss the designs.

    Update I won’t post dates on social media but let’s just say the tins will be traveling earlier than originally posted. I am doing a theme very similar to my tattoo with the red background. I have some ideas to discuss and plan on letting the painter create from there.

    Man I have some very custom paint ideas and can’t wait to head out for our trip up the coast to meet the painters and discuss. Still have approximately 4 weeks until the parts get back from chrome. This dog is going to be sick when done .

    Of course I probably could have just went out and bought a new bike but this one is going to be original

    Thanks, now I can get to assembling a majority of the ridgeback

    Tins are going out on the 22 nd of March for paint and I love the scheme.

    From there is mainly small stuff and powdercoat.

    The wheels are going to have to wait especially if I am transferring to Florida sooner than expected. The transfer may end up delaying the completion of the ridgeback build pretty extensively . We will see
    Will post pics of the progress very soon
