Well, its been a long time coming. And I have been lagging on creating a project thread due to the fact that I have not taken any nice pictures as of yet. But will try to do so soon and add them to this thread.

A little background on my build...

It started a year ago when I sent a head out to get ported and purchased a Venom piston. Well, from that point on I ran into a string of bad luck which included a badly broken foot and ankle that has taken me almost 9 months to recover from. During that time I was unable to work and did not have much to do but to work on my build. And that I did... I can't say how much time I have into it (did'nt keep track) but I know its hundreds of hours.

Now, some things about this build that aren't really visible. All of the aluminum that I polished on this R was sealed with Zoop Seal which should prevent any oxidation for about 2 years. I also sealed all of the powder coating with 2 coats of polymer sealant. The other thing not very visible is all of the hardware used to put it back together. 100% of the nuts and bolts are polished stainless steel. Even items such as the carb were put back together with stainless hardware.

Okay, some details on my 2005 TRX471R...

Okay, I think that's everything except a few small billet items that I can't remember the brand.

Also, if someone decides to add up the cost of all the above.... PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME. I don't want to know... cause it would probably give me a heart attack.


That's enough typing.... I'll let the pics do the rest of the talking.

Thats something to be extremely proud of. You did a sick ass job Miguel.[/b]
Thanks a lot Morgan... it's been one hell of a journey. I'm just glad it's over and I can ride it again. I can also focus on some other projects that I have going. This build took up so much time it's crazy when I think back at all of the work. Specially the polishing.... never again.

:eek:oh4: Excuse me while I go and clean my shorts!! lol You can tell that a whole lot of time and more time went into that bike. By far one of the nicest/cleanest I've seen to date.

You definitely have a head-turner there!!

Where did you get those plastics? Those are really sharp looking. Again, props to you for a killer job Nor*Cal

Thanks for the props guys.

redrider, I got the plastics from Troy Racing and added the silver vinyl to change things up a bit.
