first Gen SV650 revival

So I have owned quite a few sv 's and last Feb i came across a Dead one that I had to have as in a prior life someone had done everything I would have done. First Gen, so it has the frame I like the look of, it had GSXR front end, Olhins rear shock, single sided swingarm and Ducatti wheels. It also had some stuff I did not like such as a GSXR circa 2000 tail section, which I find too bulky. and a custom instrument cluster I did not like. I actually found a picture of the bike when it was great, and will attach a pict. At this point someone had rattlecanned flat black over the original orange, and fried the whole wiring harness. I still bought it and am slowly bringing it back. A good friend who was a Suzuki mechanic did the initial replacement of the main harness, and also stator and rectifier, so that it now runs. I am now doing the rest of the electrical, including instalation of a stock naked cluster. The plan is to go back to orange but a candy orange with metal flake.
