Let the fun begin/updated10/11/14

About a month ago I picked up a 98 with 27k miles on it for a great price. The P.O. did nothing except put gas in it, and changed the oil, I think, he did this for about 17k of the total miles.

Needless to say it needed a lot of TLC. I am no stranger to rebuilding bikes, I did my 91 EX500 which was a basket case for sure to say the least, here is the link to see that build:

With that said I'm going through the bike, repairing, replacing, & modifying as I go, with the exception of the engine/transmission that seems solid no noises or smoke.

Here is a link to the progress as told by pictures, as I add more picks I will bump this thread.

I welcome all comments, ideas and suggestions.

I'm not your mom and I'm not paying for your parts, so do whatever you want with your own bike.

Thank you, I've been working with that stuff awhile now, the one piece of advice I can give is take it slow, and lots of patience.

The wrap is on somewhat of a cardboard spool right? Ala gladwrap, correct?

I like the way the tank looks as well.

More like contact paper, like shelf paper. It can be removed easily if need be.

The project is done, with the expections of small adjustments here and there, time for its maiden voyage.

Here's the link to see the final results.

After removing the OEM graphics, I ordered a set of "ZX-2R" graphics from MaximuSS Graphics. I had them custom make a set in reflective silver.

Their quality graphics, and they were the nice touch I was looking for, and the added safety of reflective at night. Here are some pictures in the daytime, I will post some nighttime pics later.
