This number is definitely ready for the streets and give quite a face lift to the rest of the motorcycle roaster. In direct sunlight – it presents itself with a slight shimmer that is integrated into the base-coats, and creates a deep galaxy effect within the clear coats.
From the decal applications to the metallic gold pin striping – this frameset looks better than the original (from what I’ve seen in the images). The amount of research and attention to detail paid off in the end. Hopefully I’ll be getting some images of this frameset at built up.
The first pass of pin-stripping is showing great potential. These decals were the original set from 1970, so difficulty of placing them were quite high. There is a lot more prep work to go but you can get an idea what the finalized frameset will look like.
The decals along with the detail treatments in yellow over the candy red look amazing! A few coats of clear to protect all this awesomeness – we’ll be in business to build her up.
Ohh man! This baby is dripping wet so much without the slightest touch of polishing. I wish I was restoring the rest of the frameset but I think it looks nice and juicy as is.
This Benotto classic restoration came out beautiful; the correct way to restore a frameset like this one
This frameset look amazing with the final build – the lite effects on the metal tone are subdued but effective
This Rb-1 is looking glossier and blacker than ever. This successful restoration is near spot on to the original, with the exception of removing some additional accent decals
The Spicer looks HOT! Hopefully we’ll be getting some sun, so I can shoot some sunny pics your way. For now,
The completion of this project blows the original out of the water. The clear has more effects, there is more luster, dents repaired, and the newly applied decals are purely amazing!

The fades on this frameset are so seamless it’s hard to even uncover where I dropped the color off in a few places. Overall, this frame/build came out amazing, and is ready for the streets.
