Evening

I bought my little Honda SH very cheap as a project. The guy believed the head gasket had blown but in actual fact it hasn't and instead had air in the coolant pipe, cap not secured on properly, no air filter and battery not secured in properly. All the bits replaced and new spark plug as it must have been overfueiling. Seems to be working ok now which I am really happy about.

It's no means show room condition but from what it looked like to now I am really chuffed with my spray can paint job. The whole front end is done and next week onto the rear end and some touch up on the front.

Please don't hate me but wanted to give the little scooter a new lease of life and use it. Anyway here is a picture of the before and after shots. I will post more once all completed properly and if people want to see more, if not just say.

You did good for yourself and looks fine to me....Painting the top of the headlight black made a huge difference too.
Please keep enjoying yourself and sharing.

Well I have managed to 're paint the whole bike and got it all back together again.

Like I said in my previous post in the flesh it's by no mean immaculate but it's looking so so much better then before. I have added little touches black gloss front grill, above light and rear handles. I wanted to keep it red as it's that on the log book so have gone for a metallic red, I think it goes well with the gloss black.

Well enough talking here are some pictures of before and after plus some in the making.

Hope you like

I like what you did and how you did it and can't help but to want to take her for a ride......

I had to take her for a spin. I have a Kawasaki ZX6R (weekend bike) and am actually having as much fun on this (in a different way). You will be pleased to know all the materials for the cosmetics cost me less then £30 that was two base coats, two colour, two lacquer, filler and wing mirrors, and from stripping it to putting it All back together 4 days. All in all a cheap fix to bring her back to life.
