The evolution of my 954!

Well, here is some pictures of the evolution of my 954. Slowly but surely, the 954 is changing it's form.

I'm still waiting on the black front fender to come in.

I couldn't get the pictures to load in the right order, so the second one should be first, then the first one. Heh heh heh

Re: The evolution of my 954!

Looking good Rick. So how'd the paint on the tank turn out, and what did he charge ya? I wanna get my front upper and tank done in black to make mine all black.

Dano

{edit} how long did he have the tank for?

Re: The evolution of my 954!

Chris - Not thinking of a black tail right now. I'll leave it two tone for a while and see if I like it. If not then the bike will evolve some more!

Dano - The paint was not that bad at all. It had some slight little flaws, but you can't really see them. He charged me $150 to prep, paint and buff the tank. I don't think that's bad at all. Super quick service, he took one week to get the tank done and back to me. I'll be out at the trackday at Firebird West on the 30th, if you want to see the tank.

Re: The evolution of my 954!

Personally, I liked the bike in the 1st pic (2nd pic corrected). I still love a splash of color on the tank. The last pic is way off - even with a black tail it is not for me. But that is what personal taste is all about anyway, right?!

Well, you asked!

I kinda agree, I like the red on the fairings and all, but I think the tank is better all black. I don't like the final look all that much, but to each his own! I am sure it still rides sweet!

Looks good Rick but I think if I'd taken it that far I'd probably go all black, polish the rims and add some understated gold signage. But that's just me. And if I was going to do it I'd learn to spray paint and experiment a bit.
But life is short and I'd rather be riding.
Cheers

Re: The evolution of my 954!

I think once you get the black fender, it will look even better. I like the red tail, the contrast between the all black and red are just awesome. Maybe a set of gold Marchesini wheels would be in order?
