    Finally got all parts back from the powdercoater, it came out very nice the only issue was the sand blasting, a lot of imperfections from the factory. Its hard to notice from far but I can see it. The price was PERFECT for the 2 different colors the total was 2630 pesos around $60.00 for sandblasting and 2 colors. 15 pieces total. See pics below. I will get the rim tape and tires on today. I cant install the front waiting on the front wheel bearings from USA :( they are due here this Monday.

    Went and got the stripes done today, along with the tires mounted. I hate having to wait on thing to get here. I ordered my bearings over 1 week ago, paid extra to have them sent DHL, and the place I ordered them from didnt send them out until Friday WTF do people think….. I could have bought them here but the price is ridiculous. Oh well they will be here Monday. The guy was doing the stripes by hand and started out really good then he started getting a lot of customers and did a rush job, I complained to him but it didnt do any good. I will leave them as is for a few months then find another place to get them done.

    Bike is now done, I really like how the matte black makes the rear set and passenger pegs disappear. I think the only thing I want to change is one of the rim stripes on both rims to red I think it will match better with the paint job I have in mind, I might have it painted first then decide what I will do with the stripes.
