Latest updates to 750

Hi everyone,

I've been slowly transforming my bike, and the latest changes have been to powder coat the triple-tree and to add powder coated aluminum sleeves over the upper part of the forks and fork boots over the lower forks.

Plus I powder coated a bunch of small bolts and bits. I've included some pictures of the latest changes. I tried to hammer down the new lower bearing on the post, but I eventually had to take it to an auto shop with a hydraulic press to press it onto the post.

Next will be to get the tank, fenders and side covers painted flat black, change the rear brake light and relocate the license plate to the left side.

Cheers,
JT

It is a Puig Thunder Universal. I got it out of Europe on eBay: Puig Thunder | eBay

I saw someone who had one of the VN750 group on Facebook and decided to get one. Installation isn't bad, but it takes quite a bit of trial-and-error to get it on and securely mounted. If anyone wants the steps I used to install mine, let me know.

Cheers,
JT
