Hey, everybody-
The SV1000 project is almost finished. Nothing too radical, just enjoy people asking, "What kind of bike is that?" I plan on painting the tank and plastics gloss black (they are primer now) and possibly shortening the cans by about half. Thoughts?

Hmm, not sure about the red seat cowl, the rest of the 2-tone works well but it looks a bit like it's just been forgotten... I really like the rest though. Fork legs?

You're right- it will be painted with the rest of everything else. I just haven't gotten to it yet. I was thinking the same thing- that it looks like I forgot to do something. :)

Pretty dang cool. Was the frame powder coated or painted?
It was powdercoated. My cousin worked for Caterpillar as a welder, and before he was laid off, he gave me the hookup. Actually, this is an '03, so I had to powdercoat the frame, subframe, swingarm, and wheels. The silver just wasn't doing it for me. It is industrial color- the actual fire-engine red that they coat fire engines with.
