More great info! Thanks so much!
I find myself less worried about doing this on my own with your words (although I want her running again before I paint her).
I want to paint her solid gloss black. The only "design" I want is the bat-symbol on either side of the tank and maybe on the front and back fender in one spot (but probably just on the tank). That should be simple enough with a stencil, no?
Also, you mentioned rust and there isn't much, but I would like to kill it where I can. I've also noticed a few spots on the frame- is it a similar process to sand to bare metal and primer then paint over it? I'll be researching this more seriously now.. with your encouragement and support it looks doable!
