Current Bike State

Stripped naked and ready for paint in the morning! I'll get another picture when the bike's back together.

Re: Current Bike State

Finish tearing it down and powdercoat the frame.
It would look good with a high gloss black frame and swingarm.

Don't have the tools or the money. I'm a full time student, I can barely afford to paint the bike myself.

Re: Current Bike State

Take a look, it went from this:



To This:







I think it turned out great. It's just now dry enough to wetsand, polish and buff, but it came out so good I'm thinking of skipping the wetsanding. Is that a good or bad idea? I also have a "Seven Stars Honda" kit that is going on after I buff it.

What do you think?

Oh, I rattle canned it. (just may be the best rattle can job ever)
