Hi everyone,I will try to post pictures from my resto project and the hurdles encountered along the way.hope you find it interesting.At the earliest point,I had already changed the valve clearances,front fork seals,stripped and split all calipers,and head bearings,so decided to turn towards the paint side of things.

Looks like Freddie Kruger been let loose.I couldn't believe it when I unwrapped the protection.The arm was perfect when I done it off the bike.
Lesson here folks,learn to walk away when painting.what has happened here is the primer was too thick/soft when black was applied.,and has floated,causing the appearance of deep scratches,the two paints having different drying times,and parted company.Walk away don't rush it!!
