I mean that looks cool and all but not really my thing. I would really like a TL one day, completely unmolested even. Just stripped naked and performance goodies would probably be as far as I could go. I'm just bustin your balls dude. I am interested to see what you do with it.

Gloss black tins with yellow accent decals. Like a big blocky GS1100ES style SUZUKI in yellow. And I'll send a WhiskeyRacer sticker for the top of the tank.
Going with gloss black tins.

Paint is next step. Putting the rest back together soon.

Powerplant is fun, way too much fun. Chassis is just the complete opposite. But, with handlebars, the bike is a blast.

Gas tank and plastics. Nothing to do with it being a TL.
