    Brake disc

    Got to try something new today. I went to the machine shop and reground the front disc and it came out nice.
    1st I glass beaded it then primed and painted the center on both sides.
    2nd surface ground both sides on a flywheel grinder
    3rd chamfered the cooling holes and then went back and touched up the center with paint.
    I measured the disc when I was done and still had plenty of material left on it.
    All and all I'm very happy with the end result!

    Man glad you PM'ed me with the link on this because I had totally missed it! The cadium plated hardware is awesome looking, wow! I use to have coffee cans full of OEM hardware and its just gotten used up and dumped over/lost over the years. I'll have to be more conscious of that in the future and remember that you can re-plate them up and make them that nice. The brake disc is awesome, its kind of funny you posted this because I had a front disc that was really glazed over (and like oil impregnated from bad fork seals leaking down to it and then into the pads), the darn thing couldn't hardly make the 250R stop. I went the little bit (ok, a lot haha) more ghetto method and used a bench grinder, but I just roughed it back up a bit and man it sure did make a difference in how well it stopped!

    Buffing & a little lathe work today

    Today i set aside some time to work on getting most of the buffing done before I send the parts out to anodize.I still have the lower fork legs to do this week and hopefully we be able to drop everything off buy the end of the week.
    I had some time left so I got the front brake line guide made . I wanted to do it in black to keep with the colors of the build.I will also be making the front seat latch bushing the same way.
    Thanks for looking and keep you up to date. Glenn

    Rear shock bottle bracket

    Got a little time in the shop to work on it again. This time I had to go back wards a little I over looked that the rear shock bottle mount was broken and had to drill it out and use a billet replacement. All went well I was worried about the drill holes and how I was going to touch up the powder coat but my wife saved me one this one we found nail polish that was a near perfect match!
    I found a very nice replacement bracket on ebay from SRS suspensions that I would highly recommend. In the end I was happy the way it turned out. I ended up setting the pipe on and checking clearances and the fit is perfect as always with Duncan products.
    Next will be getting the anodize back and the next post hopefully you will see the front and rear end on. Thanks for checking it out!
