Just Finished with some paint work on my 954

Well, I felt a little like a clown with my paper front number plate at FBo 2006 so here's what I did last night and today:

Taped off the nose and primered and painted a number plate. I used regular spray paint and it came out very well. For a finishing touch I got some automotive pinstrip and went around 5 sides of it in red. It looks pretty good if I do say so myself.

I want to get some Planet Superbike Headlight Covers with red eyes on a black background. That way I don't have to tape the headlight each time I go to the track.

Doubtless over the winter. I'll send the forks and shock to DK for new fluid and springs.

Woo hoo!
