    Awesome job, Nitin! I love the attention to detail, the bike looks entirely new and reminds me of the day I took my RX home from the showroom.

    @All.
    Thank you for your kind words. I tried to post a reply last evening thrice. Everytime my broadband connection would give up on me just when I hit 'submit reply' button

    Regarding prices, please don't get me wrong, I am reluctant to discuss it. It will lead to unnecessary arguments I feel.

    When I started the job, I had no budget. Whatever it takes was the thinking.

    Following are the jobs done:-

    • Painting, Tank cover
    • Painting, Side covers/shield
    • Painting, Chasis (pics on ownership thread)
    • Chroming of all steel parts
    • Zinc plating of all nuts & bolts
    • Teflon coating
    • Silver paint for head, wheel hubs, casings & forks.
    Following were the parts replaced:-

    • Witing kit
    • Switch gear
    • Tail lamp assembly
    • All indicators
    • Rear mudguard (including the fibre part)
    • Pilot lamps
    • Spoke set
    • Full body rubber kit
    • Numerous pins & bolts
    • Brake shoes
    • Clutch & brake cables
    • Cone cup kit
    • Kicker assembly
    All parts are Genuine Yamaha spares. No compromise on that.

    No engine work was done, because it wasn't needed. This bike has been in regular use and maintenance since 23 years. Replaced the bore around 7-8 years back at 83,500kms. It has done 40,000kms on the current bore (G-4).

    Piston is the original one that came along with the bike. All transmission parts like clutch plates & friction plates are original and haven't been changed in 23 years.

    Here is the link to the high resolution pics ImageShack -

    Sorry, for the delay. My broadband connection has been acting up for the past three days. Thanks to road widening work
