It's getting closer, but 2 hand surgeries this year (the 2nd one 2 days ago), progress is slow, just like my left handed typing. 

 

Refurbished another set of gauges to go on a re-worked meter bracket and eliminated the mirror mounts with 2 new brackets connecting the upper cowl at original 900RR mirror mounts.  The bracket was so mangled I almost threw it away twice, but when I mocked it back up everything still lined up.

Removed the remaining stickers and adhesive, 2 repairs, 7 hours of sanding and the first coat of primer.  Fun.  This was just last week.  Gonna be stalled here for a bit now.

Will get white paint (red front fender) and some graphics and decals to tie some stuff together.  Real paint job with full stripes will have to wait for now.

Fabulous! I love the dual round headlights.

 

(Are you sure you've got enough motorcycles? You seem to be a master of MBD (multi bike disorder).
