Got the rearsets back on the bike after their paint job.

Broke the rear-sets down for cleaning and painting.  Just have to let them dry so we can put them back on the bike!

The old Harley air shock we had broke down after a few test rides, so we put on this nice BMW shock in its place!

Packed up cylinders

Packed up the cylinders to ship them out for a proper rebore.  Got them taken apart, boxed in their own tiny boxes, placed in an old thick plastic cooler for the best protection (not pictured), then that placed in its own box.  Ready to ship!

Back together (Mostly)

Most of the Suzuki is all set, and the sidecar is mounted again.  The sidecar had a full rewiring, the the bike was gone through entirely  repainted, and we made our own exhaust for it.
Bike runs great, and with the added weights on the sidecar frame it handle super well.  Bunch of pics below!
