like an archaeologist...

shinya said he could feel some lines underneath this someone-painted-it-white tank. must be the original paint he said, though i could not feel anything.

誰かが白く塗ってしまったこのタンクの下に、何かラインが見える!と騒ぐ木村氏。さらに、もしかしてオリジナルペイントかもしれん!と勝手に盛り上がる木村氏。私にはなーんも見えませんがな。

 oh, my!

キタァァァ!ほとんど執念。


 mint condition!

しかも綺麗。

 the side cover, too.

サイドカバーも。


for the all rusted rear and front fenders, he sprayed it...

錆び錆びのリアとフロントのフェンダーは缶スプレーで色をマッチング。

 here is the all new honda XL100, one of shinya's personal bikes! now his hobby time is up...

すっかり姿を変えて新・加瀬じゃなかった、新・XL100の出来上がり!嬉しそうな木村氏、そろそろ趣味の時間も終わりです。

Wow! Working magic with paint now too! How did he remove the white without destroying the original? Red is faster!

Patience rewarded. I did something similar with an old Fender guitar that some one had brush painted with multiple coats of varnish on the body, and spray painted over the beautiful tortoiseshell pick gaurd.

Now, is that an earlier 70's set of parts off of a SL-100?

t: isn't it sweet?

Bush Brothers: yup!

pushrodmofo: i guess the original had some coating. he just rubbed with acetone to remove the white.

Hairy Larry: wow, fender guitar! it must have made you very happy when you saw the tortoiseshell pick guard came out. SL100 and XL100 have same exterior.

Bushwacker: shinya said "thanks, dude!"
