Fresh 1970 Chibi Restoration - Additional Pix
« on: January 05, 2021, 06:40:24 PM »
Sharing pictures of my recently restored 1970 non-deluxe Chibi. I powder coated (2 step) the frame, fenders and rims using Prismatic Illusion blue and clear. Tank is custom color matched using a 3 stage PPG paint (white primer, silver metallic base, Metallic Illusion Blue mid coat, and 4 coats of a K2 clear, wet sanded and polished). The paint really pops - love it. It would be a modern day paint job should the bikes be built today. The engine was a complete tear down and rebuild. No expense spared. This Chibi will join my deluxe model for awhile at the Northeast Classic Car (Motorcycle) Museum located in Norwich NY. I will post restoration pictures in my gallery.

Chrome/polishing - Atlas Plating - Texas
Seat - Northeast Trim - Oneida NY.

Now to complete my Taka restoration by Spring.

Contact me with any questions.
Kevin
