This is the new bottom triple for my naked

It started life as a stock gixxer unit. the tag for the steering damper was removed, the triple dipped in caustic to remove the anodising and the casting marks removed by filing. I then cleaned up the worst of the scratches and file marks with a drill mounted sanding drum before passing it to a mate who does polishing.

Thi is what I got back. bloody awesome:hail.

So if anyone in oz wants an ultra shiny bike then PM me for his details . he's not cheap nor is he dear but man he's good!!:banana

half polished fades quickly, properly polished lasts well

this thread has the potential to turn into a full blow tech debate, then end up as a off topic post whore :)

seriosuly, just a bit of elbow grease then. I obviously lack patienec as found niggly bits really hard to get to same level of shine as easy bits!

but then just laquer to preserve shine right?
