I was doing maintenance work this winter & decided to strip her all the way down, disassembly the luggage & have her repainted. What do you think?

Thanks Guys,
I'm really happy with the result!
I've had it out a few times & have gotten lots of questions/complements about the bike. Most people think it is new...LOL. New; with 65,000 miles on her.

And a big thank you to all the information & help I got on this forum. And, Yes I am a paying member

I disassembled everything & brought it into a paint shop.
1 coat primer
3 coats white basecoat (Toyota 040: Ultra White)
3 coats of clear

I do like the clear turn signal lenses. Where did you get those???

I can't claim any of the credit for mine...I bought it this way with clear turn signals and all. I've had quite a few surprised that it wasn't a new bike too...bought this '99 in 2011 with 63K on it.

Thanks, I even went a step futher. I painted the housing white, then I frosted the clear lens, then I found led bulbs that are white when off. The lens really are white when off and they light up a soft yellow.
