    Yah, just revisited this thread to point that out. No worries, I'm stripping / repainting it anyway, so no real attachment to the 'original paint' concept.

    I'm not going for an original rest, more of a refresh. It's a surprise gift for a friend who used to own it.

    The exhaust was Jet Hot coated and the headlight bezel was powder coated.

    Very sharp, thought about the powder on the exhaust not working after I posted it.

    Just curious, how much does that exhaust coating cost?

    Love the bike!!!!! Tell me what the black piece is on the valve cover? Does it keep that nut from vibrating off?

    I saw that as a throwback to older valve cover designs where the covers were split between intake and exhaust. The valve covers on my R25/2 are exactly like this with a "bar" used to hold each cover in place. On my bike, there's no 10mm nut on the back side...it's just the bar across both of the covers.

    Sorry I do not know. The guy I built the bike for brought them to me.

    They are part of the Siebenrock 3 piece valve covers.

    Will be a while until this one is done and ready to be given to my buddy - Leo Goff will be rebuilding the top end and ensuring it's otherwise mechanically perfect (but can't get to it until at least December) and quite a bit of aesthetic stuff needs to happen, but today I nuked the ugly / loud bugle pipes that came on it:



    and put some factory pipes back on it (well, Emgos) - these will be JetHot coated in black while Leo has the bike in December:



    Sounds so much better, and runs better. I'm betting whoever put the bugles on didn't rejet the carbs. Sounds like a nice sewing machine now.

    Still trying to figure out what to do about the seat - considering a solo, but also considering a factory seat as well as a corbin. Def going to go mildly 'cafe racer' with it, lots of matte black.
