CSC FIII on the GL1800

Page 1 of 4Next

so now that I have sold the 1500 rig and the Yamaha with the trike kit I can finally concentrate on the 1800

I recently picked up a CSC Friendship III to install on my 1800. I have my sub frame ordered so now it's time to get everything ready for the build. this weekend I took everything apart on the F3 and have the frame here at work stripping it down for fresh paint. it spent a lot of time in Fl. so it was a little rough, nothing a good cleaning and fresh paint can't fix here are a couple shots of the frame when I removed it.

I guess that frame is rough. That is one reason why I hate power coating. When its not done right the moisture gets trap under the coating it really corrodes the metal. I'am sure it will look good when its done.

Good luck with the build. A winter project?

 

I hope it doesn't drag out that long, but you never know

  Be watching to see how it comes out.

I got the main frame cleaned and got it primed today.  hopefully I can get it painted tomorrow. I took the connecting arms over to our sand blasting room to let them clean them up, I was going to let them do the frame but it wouldn't fit in the cabinet so I had to do it the old fashioned way. then I took all the bolts and joints and hand cleaned them on a bench wire wheel.

That cleaned up nicely. No deep pits or cracks?

nothing worth worrying about, couple places were pitted, but it did clean up nice

well after catching the crud and the Wife and I fighting our way through it I am finally feeling better. Monica is still feeling a bit under but she is doing much better. I managed to get the frame and all mounting hardware painted, I shot the last coat on them this morning and they are hanging in the garage curing. I took the fender, trunk lid and main body lid out and sanded them down today. I still have to go back in and do a good bit of work by hand on the top with all the nooks and crannies. no pictures right now but I will get some later.
