Joined up, and intro'ed myself several days ago. Thought I'd check in here and share some pics since it seems the place for the 919 crowd.
If you missed my formal intro, here's the skinny:
Been looking for a 919 for months.
Wanted either a perfect bike, or a deal on one I could paint and mod.
Found the one below. Dealer was asking $4899, got it for $3700.
A few scrapes
Couple of tank dents. One on each side.
...and case scratches
Went to work on the case scratches. Sanded out most with 100 grit on a DA sander. Filled remaining scratches with JB Weld.
Painted with this. Came out a little to glossy, so I knocked off some of the shine with #0000 steel wool.
Finished. Color is a better match than the pictures let on.
Re-paint (leaning towards a medium too medium/dark blue)
Rear fender bob
Integrated tail light (just ordered)
I'll update with pics as stuff gets done.
