That would make me want to ride it more. I'd love to try out someone else's jockey shift bike. Just to say I have ridden one.

Wolfie Just a note for anyone wanting to paint over chrome...get some Muriatic acid from the hardware store (its just dilute Hydrochloric)...."paint" it onto the chrome, wait overnight, wash with water, powder with baking soda, and THEN take some sandpaper to it....then use a self etching primer first, then paint...

Lookin good, man !...

Try dropping your pants and sitting your bare butt on the seat in front of them ....... worked for me .... but then I have wimpy friends. LOL

Fenris Yea, thats all i was thinking for wheels and forks, new colors.like black rims with green highlight or vice versa.

OleDirtyDoc looking sweet.

VampV Thanx for encouragement. The 'techique' is header paint from a can. LOL. Sure if you bang it with your foot, it'll rub off. I scuffed all the chrome parts with a med. sandpaper before acetoning it off and then promptly painting.

Wheels and forks... nothing at the moment because the vulcan rides/handles sooo well.
I might get in and paint them black / green too.
The color combo wasnt my idea... it was my buddys. He just wanted to do it.. so i agreed and tore the bike down... he had a customer of his powder coat it.

I'll get more pics soon as i can.!!
