More parts in black chrome. The orange peel is minimal but still there. I'm sure it'll buff out, I just don't have the time to do it before leaving the country.

Got a few more parts done up so I can finish putting my 600 back together. The black chrome is just the sexy!

Control housing look fresh off the assembly line. Too bad there isn't anything I can do about the switches.
Image

It still needs another coat to cover the amount of imperfections on there but it's going to look a hell of a lot better than when I got it.

Sexy handle holders

The other coolant pipes are jealous!

Flash didn't go off at full so it looks a little darker but still looks good! Did some washers and the castle nut, the rearsets, levers, and did a rear MC but it's not pictured.

If they do, I'll have a tough choice: install the new rearsets and do a photo shoot, or go to the hospital to see my best friends baby boy come into the world. :whistle

Didn't get here last night, but the rearsets will probably get here today. I really wish they'd gotten here yesterday and that I had missed the whole thing. Waited in the waiting room 2.5 hours to see my buddy for 5 minutes before visiting hours were over. My buddy's over-enthusiastic mother was so excited to show me the pics of the new baby, she wound up showing me the pictures of everything happening. Could have gone another couple of years without seeing that. You can hear about it, and know the science of how it works, but until you see pics of someone you know getting "ripped a new one" (literally) you don't completely understand.

It's official: I don't want kids. If I ever get kids, they'll be adopted.

Just be glad you are not female. It is an interesting sight, isn't it.
Yes, that is a Single Sided Swingarm FZR600 that I built.

Something is lurking, waiting, wanting to be built......It calls to me from the darkness....

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel....Then I realize that it is the train coming to run my ass over....
