Love the detail Rick, very nice job and can't wait to see more.  Does anyone know it the metallic brown was used as late as the 1969 1050?

Nice job buddy ! Glad I could help. Now about those wheels.... you know I think there is a set of NOS hubcaps on Ebay, how sweet would those look on there after the wheels are painted.

Glad to have been a very small helping hand of this great project.  The wheels aren't ugly - they are the TTS (temporary transition statement) from what used to be to what it now is! :D

 

Looking very NICE Rick - congratulations.

Beautiful!!! I love it i! I can't say I've seen many restored 1000s before.

 

Nice job, Rick. You did a great job and thanks for posting the project here for us to follow. You'll have to trailer it to a show this summer. :thumbs:
