Here is a before and after image of some changes that I made to my 1998 Thunderbird Sport. Let me know what you think.

Also I wanted to say that there is a ton of awesome information that I was able to glean off of this forum from others that have done work and modifications on their bikes before me and I couldn't have done it with out all of the great information that was provided by this great community. So, Thanks.

Wow, you did a great job of restoring it. Not a fan of yellow myself, but it still looks good.

Did you buy it as a write off or did the insurance pay to have it fixed up?

He has to be screwing with us. Why would you do that to a beautiful bike?

I like it.
It's got that Mad Max, very tough looking theme to it.

What did you do to the "bare metal" tank to keep it from rusting?
How does it run with open pipes?
I love the brown leather seat and brown handle grips.

You DID have a beautiful bike...I like the new look in general,except for stripping the finish off of an already rather rare bike.
