Bike now Completely stripped

Ok no pics at the mo but she is all stripped down to just parts now. The frame has been cleaned and is ready to be sanded for repaint. I have spent 5 hours on the back wheel and it is looking great will post pics possibly this weekend when it is finished. Plastics are almost ready for painting will post pics of progress soon.

The begining of project

I decided I would restore a 1989 ZX10, My wife said I should Blog it whatever that meant so here goes 

I bought this great Classic of a bike and as you can see she needs some TLC so I proceeded to pull her down and am going to restore to original the best I can.
 Top : Rear wheel. Bottom : Front wheel
 Below is the Right Passenger foot peg, as you can see there is a fair bit of corrosion. quite a bit of the alloy is like this so you can imagine the job ahead
