GS550 Cafe: Zinc Plated Happiness

Sent off a good portion of the hardware for the Suzuki GS550 pseudo-cafe project bike to Fanning Plating in Sherman a few weeks back for a little zinc goodness. My obsession with this finish started when we were assembling the Camaro; Grade 8 bolts just have a serious, kind of menacing all-business look to me. Anyway, I couldn’t be happier with the results, especially in contrast with the matte black frame.

It’s like a little box of joy – I’m probably a little too excited about this to be honest.

With fall here, and winter (well, as winter as it gets around here) approaching, it should find it’s way back onto the jack for reassemblage soon.
