I agree but with just with a tank and two sidecovers would be nice to finish it off.
vjmc membership? i know a committee member that might give you a reference.lol. first dibs if you decide to sell it.

Bit of pictorial history.
You too can look good on a Suzuki.
Love the vids @Murdo , @Phil and I did some work on it today , we have one barrel off , the other is being somewhat difficult.
I am thinking that a full crank rebuild is in order while it is apart, that way I know it will be right. Good news is that SuZuki still have loads of NOS parts available and they are quite reasonably priced
Heat up the barrel with a hot air gun from the outside (keep a wet rag on the piston) and it should come free. With it sitting for so long I would be having a look at the crank seals and replace if in any doubt.
Penetrine. Heat, of course. If the piston is low, you might be able to lift and twist the cylinder, separating the piston from the cylinder first, tap the piston down to free the rings. Just some suggestions
@Frankster is getting his “wet blast” on today
Got to love using the Hulkster. I never understood what "all the way to your elbow" meant until I started using this thing.
I go shoulder deep for my regulars
Sold the mc19. Had mixed feeling, thought about keeping a CBR, but a dozen bikes are more than enough. Maybe...
never enuff bikes as they are boys toys
I did a bit of filling some small dents on my tank and then gave it a light hit of Etch Primer.
Also started to polish the lip on my front wheel.
Didn’t get any pics but I will concentrate on polishing the lips of both wheels, tomorrow.

When you have a quick couple of maintenance jobs to do on your bike, but each time you remove a couple of pieces you think "while that's apart, I could do this, too" and before you know, you're stripping the bike!
Checking valves clearances, replacing spark plugs, throttle syncing to come, I'm sure I'll find more jobs to do, too. But it did open a can of worms. When I pulled the air box apart, I discovered the air filter had disintegrated and the throttle bodies were blackened - bit of cleaning required but suspect there's some more maintenance to do while here. But when to stop?!
So this morning I searched high and low for my good old Rockwell $69 buff that has done dozens and dozens of cars... eventually found it in the last possible place it could be.. (always the way)
Fitted the mandrel and realised the buffing wheels I have are too small but gave it a go on the rear wheel.. just to see how it would go.
Maybe I am being too fussy.. but I am not happy with the finish I am getting.. maybe larger diameter wheels will cut a bit better but these rims seem to have a much harder surface than the last wheels I polished.
These were a set of BBS LM rims that I had on my Scirocco R. They were too big with the wrong offsets but I loved the look.
FZR Rear partial polish
These are the BBS rims I polished.. they are a bit easier when you can remove the centres..
Maybe it has something to do with the BBS being forged and the FZR are Cast.. or maybe I am just being too fussy...
Get some autosol metal polish and do it the old fashioned way
I use a 6" polishing mop
This is the style i start with, and use the white polishing compound
Then move on to a Calico and use Autosol, or Purple Polish
This kit is ok for the price too, but the compound is only small
Some alloys polish better than others. Different alloys machine, weld and cast to different quality, give different colours and so forth. Castable alloy typically not great for machining, so may not polish as nice - blame the lead!
They will polish up OK.. I agree with @my67xr on using the 6" items and I had looked earlier at those 2 pads.. so even though I have "finished" them I will grab those pads during the week and have another shot at them.. .
They came up OK though considering I am using 4" pads.
I am just really fussy
