Kawasaki H1R , finally painted something green!

Got around to a few more things, put relined shoes in the rear and finished building the rear brake cable, but still have to find a spring for it. finished the lockwires on all the brake parts as well. then i figured id get some color on it! so i scraped much paint from the seat cowl, a few layers but there was a spec a green under all the blue/red/silver/purple?  my next step might be to tackle the tank and it has a few pinhole leaks in it, im not sure how to tackle that yet.

  1. A pity about that sticker, IMHO - It would've been nice to have cut paint off all around it - Seems like that's why you were chipping the paint in the first place. If nothing else, perhaps a restored image could be recreated and reprinted? Wouldn't be at all pretentious, being that the sticker was already on the bike. It's good that you've recorded it here, if nothing else. But yeah, who's to say how many of those stickers are still out there? Slim chance, zero to none. I'm not saying you should be selling 'em on eBay or anything like that. Just to retain a bit of the bike's history, that's all....
