Evaluation of the Motorcycle Before Restoration Begins

Before embarking on this restoration journey, we began with a precise evaluation that was basically followed by a process of motorcycle rebuilding. The owner’s dream customization was our mission, and we were eager to make it a reality. Every section of the motorcycle was meticulously assessed, from each type of metal, to the paint, leather seat, lights, speedometer, controls, etc.

The next step was to disassemble most parts in order to have access to everything and work on each portion individually. Different parts required extensive restoration, re-chroming, replacement, or repainting and reupholstering.

Bike Restoration, Customization, and Preservation

The motorcycle restoration process kicked off by addressing each surface with the high level of care required. Each surface was brought back to life first or replaced, then preserved with different professional techniques and different types of ceramic coatings.

Metals: rejuvenate each metal section of the motorcycle.

  • Remove rust from motorcycle
  • Extreme chrome polish
  • Re-chrome lower fork sliders

Rims and Tires: correct the surface and seal results for a long-lasting shine.

Engine: thorough process to eradicate oxidation and apply protection that lasts.

Frame: restore original shine of the surface.

  • Powder coated restoration

Paint: custom paint for fenders and as part of the motorcycle fuel tank restoration, followed by 5-year ceramic coating protection with our top-of-the-line Gyeon coatings offering a high level of reflection and hydrophobicity.

Replacements: finishing touches to complete the motorcycle restoration and customization.

  • Reupholstered full seat with new custom seat using white and blue leather
  • New speedometer
  • New switch housings
  • Removed original tank emblems and replaced with new blue emblems to match the custom paint job
