Nice bike, but lose the red barends. This is just my opinion but I think they make the bike look tacky. Other than that, nice bike!

Looks good, eh the bike would look a little better without barends.

Different strokes for different folks.

Looks good, over the winter we may be polishing a friends frame and wheels.

Was it difficult?

Wow! Check out that cool submarine moored in the back yard! :eek:

You gotta paint U-571 on it or something...
And make the pics a little b*****.

thanks for the compliments, i'll be getting anti-vib bar ends in later this month to replace the red ones. the polishing wasn't hard just to too long. my advice to anyone who wants it done: let someone else do it for you.

when i did my F3 wheels it took me a total of 24 hours give or take. i sanded mine down and then went up. most ppl just strip i sanded and with sanding they come out alot better but it is alot of work. you start with 150 then go up the ladder up to 2000 wet.

The wheels took a total of six hours to polish. I did have to take them off to do it a lot quicker, if they were on the bike it would have been a pain in the ass.
