Damn that looks great!

Re: Newport resto-mod

What did you use to get the fade so even...?

Re: Newport resto-mod

The sun.

Re: Newport resto-mod

I like the shower drain strainer air intake ...

Re: Newport resto-mod

Usually if it was really sun faded, one side will be faded mor than the other unless it was facing north/south in the middle of a field...

It was parked facing due north for almost 38 years in a back lot in Denver about 1/2 mile from my house. Everything else on the bike but the frame, swingarm and upper fork assembly went straight to the trash, even the cases were junk. It rotted into the ground and was covered in over growth. Surprisingly the tank was clean enough to just need a quick flush.

I was going to build her a nice clean gold maxi but she saw this and had to have it. (edited)
