New Paint Job

I just painted my bike. I did everything myself! I have never done any painting before, so it did not turn out perfect, but I am happy with how it looks. I moved the license plate to a side mount, by the left shock, which I thinks looks really good. Check it out...

Man that looks great!!!

I've been wanting to have mine painted too, it's be great if you could post a "how to" for the do-it-your-selfers here.



Cindy, I know that you're not still thinking that green color are you?

I smile 'cause I don't know what the h*ll is going on.

Looks mighty fine for a first time!
The license plate on the side cleans up the fender nicely, but it does look like it wouldn't allow for using saddlebags though.

Yes, Big T, yes I am! Actually, I should think long and hard about that - McNabb is back in the slot: the throws will invariably be at the receivers' feet, and clock management will be out the window. I'll get upset, swear i'm never rooting for 'em again, and then I'll go out and kick my bike. Hmmmm.... You wouldn't have an alternate color in mind, would ya?

Copper and Black would be cool.

Aqua Blue and Silver would be nice for a Brighter look.
