Another Maxi Rebuild

I picked up a silver Maxi last week. Tonight I started tearing into it. 

I started by taking it completely apart. Ill sand and paint it, and put it back together. 

Cleaned up the frame. 

Cleaned up my paint guns and got them ready. 

 I went tear base coat with a green flake over it. Should look great with thick clear. 

Started assembling the Maxi

 All new wiring. 

 Wiring cleaned up and finished.

Maxi rebuild

Picked up a Maxi. Tore it apart and started putting it back together. 

 I have this great little shopping cart that holds everything I removed from the bike. 

I washed the frame and parts with oven cleaner and scuffed everything with steel wool. 

Primed everything and then painted red.

Ready for clear coat. I used Spraymax 2K clear. 

The engine rebuild used a treats performance crank, all new bearings and seals, 70cc treats top end, and a internal coil points ignition. 

I got a new buffing wheel and got to try it out on the controls. 

I rewired everything and fan new cables.

Tank for the Momster

Had an idea while prepping the tank. I always like the look when you sand thru the guide coat and get the color of the primer thru. I thought what if I painted the tank an accent color and then painted over it with black and then sanded thru. Worst case is I wouldn't like it and could just finish with a color coat. I think it turned out pretty good. I still need to clear coat it.
