Mohawk Refinish

I acquired a very early version of the Horrocks-Ibotson Mohawk 1600 "Buddy" 'glass rod this week. It was donated to a yard sale, but then pulled from the sale and listed online for sale. I still got it for a steal, even considering this is a cheap rod. I've wanted to do a refinish for a while, and this rod gave me the perfect opportunity. It'll get a complete re-work with all new components (minus ferrules). As it sits now, it is a raw blank with a new grip completed and ready to have it and the new seat mounted.

(I'll post more, larger photos as the project wears on; I didn't have time today to post more than a collage.)
