    You're on the money exactly!

    I didnt want to drop $1500+ on a nice alloy swingarm, but also didnt want to leave this one stock.
    So had a mate with a bender do up a few bends and braces for me.

    Just picked up the frame from paint yesterday. 

    Painted primary and trans with the OEM cvo textured paint and it came up awesome too.

    I cant remember, i think its from PPG.

    I just went Blue and Gold in the medium size flake. Didnt want the huge speed boat flake, and didnt want it to just look metallic. 

    Just wanted it to look black in the shade and pop in the sun.

    That paint looks killer. Man I can't wait to see this bike together, I'm living vicariously through this build

    Cheers mate.

    It's been a pain the ass. The "anodizer" and I say that in quotations because I dont think he should call himself that, fucked my parts up, and I'm still waiting for them to get back so I can take them to someone who actually knows what the fuck they're doing rather then just pretend to. 

    Once I sort the anodizing and get a couple of little bits (correct kickstand pivot because I was sent the wrong one from America), ground strap, I can start to load the drivetrain in and get a wriggle on.

    Pics of the anodizing... 

    Cerakote turned out ok besides it looking 5 shades darker than the sample pic. I'll see how they look when they get here.
