As my bike was getting a bit scruffy, it was time for a respray and tidy up. Being as its a 94 Gixxer I worked on several Lucky Strike/ Pepsi/ Shwantz replica paint jobs, but to be honest Sheene has always been my biking hero and I wanted to keep the bike mainly black with Red, so I looked into Sheene colourschemes. Finally the XR69 rep featured in PS mag and mentioned on here struck the right cord.
I'm part way through the respray and have added a single seat conversion. As summer is slowly arriving its slowed down ( sunny rides, meets and heavy workload all contributing) so I'll post up so so far pics and add more as she progresses!
So the single seat first. I wanted to be able to still take my wife on the bike at times, so it had to be interchangable with the back seat. It took a while to get a cheap rear seat but once I did, out came the fibreglass and paints and this is what occured:
the seat hump still needs the foam pad adding ( now done ) and I'm waiting for some 'Faberge' stickers from a mate, but its in place and being used while I wait!
Fairings next, so they were removed, a few scratches filled and faired and you join it at primer stage! ...
That's it for photo' s so far, the fairings are finished sprayed, laquered and back on the bike, while the photo's are still in the camera waiting to be uploaded! I'll do that shortly......
Cut me in half, Suzuki's written right through me!
