Finally have the time for some paint to get put on, not a good looking having mismatched body panels. How the bike sat yesterday morning

How it sits now. This is literally after removing 7 nuts and 4 bolts

Tires that it has are OLD and dry rotted, splits all over the sides. Wanted to give them a modern tread pattern as well. Original tire pattern on left, new ones on the right

Went to the paint shop to pick out a red that I liked (he had 300 red samples to choose from), just so happens the sample I picked was named GM Power Red. That’s a good paint color name. Finished product to come in a few weeks. Have a friend painting the tank, side panels, and rear cowl. He refused to take payment for it, so I’m not going to complain if it takes a bit longer.
