Well, If It Don't Rain, It POURS! - Multiple Builds

... AND NONE OF IT HONDA! <<< Help me.

So while I've been puttering around with the Suzuki, here and there and sometimes nowhere, my buddy with the Harley gets me a few parts to start finishing his bike. THEN I get a text from my neighbor who now wants me to intervene and complete the chopper build that I painted the tins for months back. Ha! Well, I need to start seriously scheduling my time now. She's going to pay me for the build; I don't know where my buddy with the 883 stands with money, but we initially agreed on $500 for the "simple" reconstruction; and the Intruder just needs to be completed for sale (although I'm considering keeping it) ... DOUBLE HA! Sheesh. Updates to come ...

883. Already fixed and painted the tins months ago, not to mention damage parts control. Made some drag bars with pull back (not these ugly clubmans in the pic). Some subtle graphics (vinyl) may be added, still discussing. Exhausts to be slip ons and wrapped headers, etc, etc, etc:



Intruder as she sits right now still (most of you are up to date on the rebuild):




How the 1200 sits now minus the motor (out of frame currently). Tins already painted months ago. Plan is to send frame and some smaller parts to powder coating and discuss multiple custom bits to be done. I've already welded exhaust pipe extensions (she wants to wrap), etc, etc, etc:

Yeah, if any of them actually come to fruition, for one reason or another.

PS - I'm going to borrow your BMW. Just letting you know.

Whoa now, I was on subject in the end of the post.
And yes, I will make a 8-900 mile detour when I test his Beemer.
I love the black with red flames, that is simple and classy, but fancy all in one. Makes sense to me...
