650 C2 rebuild

Finally starting to rebuild my 650 after 6 years languishing in the garage. After having the engine aqua blasted by Wayne at Wizard Customs on Sheppey I had to make the rest of the bike look just as good. Powder coating seems to have become expensive now, last frame I had done cost £60 and had quotes of £100 to £150 for just the frame and swingarm this time, finally found JDM Powder Coating in Strood who did the frame, swingarm and box of bits for £120 and really pleased with the result. Will try and post some more pics as and when I get more work done.

Unfortunately there are big child and grandchild size holes in my pockets which is why its taken so long!! :D
I will have to clean up the rest of the bike myself and replace what I can when I can but first objective is to get it back on the road and turn it into a rolling resto as its the best bike I've ever owned, great fun to ride and get lots of "I had one of them" comments.
