After two days of stripping the powder coat, cutting, grinding, filing, sanding, and scotch-briting, the legs are free of all casting marks and sharp edges. The tabs are here to stay since I run a front brake and a fork brace. The top tree also got some attention and is now missing the headlight bucket tabs. Tedious and time consuming but well worth it in the end.
I should be picking up some parts from the powder coater tomorrow, so the Sporty should be put together by Friday. Until then, I will be giving the same treatment to other parts that needs some loving, including these riser bottoms to match this bad-ass Biltwell top clamp.
