    Been doing a little work. Had the fork lowers coated, new PM beer cans, new to me black nacelle, Progressive mono tubes, and a slotted six spoke front wheel from a very generous member. Not shown, pulled primary to fix a small annoying leak.

    Don't think that garage was cool! Here in Fla. we are enjoying our summer heat right now. There was some sweating involved to be sure. The coating I chose for my forks believe it or not is Line-X. I live and ride close to the coast and a salt environment. Powder coat is good until the first chip here. These aint gonna chip.

    Whatever the black Line-X is plus they top coated it with their product that adds some shine to it. The texture of the line-X makes it appear not as shiny.

    Black always looks good against chrome or polished aluminium
