Coasters - Updated with pics!!!

Was talking about putting coasters on the bike (already marbled) to get rid of the hoses. Got a friend with a machine shop and sent him the specs. He asked if I wanted anything on the plate. Thought about the V logo and wings. Sent him a pic from a tank logo and he came up with this. Think I may fill the lines in with black so they show up. Turned out too good to hide behind one air filter. I'm gonna have to do an ear shave now.

Looking good. The black highlight would be sharp too.

They went in the mail yesterday.

Sent an extra set for me test the painting out on. Think I may go black wings, and the V in as close color red as I can get to match the bike.

He probably can make more if anyone is interested.

Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.

Checking with him to see what he'd sell them for. I'll also post another pic when I get them in. He said the first one was more of a test for his engraving and the other one looked better.

When I say one, I meant set. (two)
