Did you get new jugs on the engine or did you just grind away the paint to the metal?

Just hit the tips of the fins with High Temp aluminum paint and a pin stripe brush.

Pat has kinda moved away from the bikes and is focusing on VW right now. He sold the bike in this thread and some firefighter paid some pretty nice scratch for his OCC Fire bike replica that you can see in the background of some of the pics. While I'm not a fan of the OCC bikes, Pat's work on his "mini fire bike" was outstanding.

Still down the road from me and still missing a finger. I'll tell him his thread is still alive over here, he'll get a kick out of it.

9fk : Great job, like many others before you, you have created and fabricated your own ride. My respect for that!

I only wish I had the same skills
