ahhh ok, I remember now.

Im going to keep the bike the way it is for now.

The other day when I left the headlight on, it drained the battery, did not realize until yesterday when I went to start it, oops.

Charged it over night, back to normal now.

fer those prices Kanuck, willin to bet theyre made as cheap as possible....thats why I suggested clearcoating over....
I had "Lethal Threat" decals on mine w/o the clearcoat, and needed a razor to get em off...REAL good stickum....
If I order, I'll get an extra or two and test first before I apply.
That graphic btw, I had on the tank bib on my Harley....always wanted to get it painted onto the sides...got one estimate of $175....I'll try the decals first.

I bet theyre thermal printed...thats why on the order thing they ask if for inside or outside a window...
Probably gonna need to trim with an Exacto too once I get em....no biggie...fer that price...I was figuring more like $12 each...they gotta be bangin these out at this cost...
if they suck, I'll delete the post, lol...

OK, I'm gonna show my ignorance and maybe I've led a sheltered life... but, can you explain the significance of the hot chick sittin in a horseshoe graphic? Looks interesting, but I'm one of those people that have to analyze the custom license plates and try to figure out what the cryptic messages are. :D

Actually, it IS somewhat cryptic....naturally, that's "Lady Luck"...varriations were oft painted onto onto WW2 aircraft (do a search of "nose art")....
This one in particular though, is part of the cover off a Bob Weir (Grateful Dead) album...a solo attempt...his nick is "Ace"....
I was dfrawn between this and a Von Dutch Flying Eyeball...still am....but the Eyeball is pretty common....wanted something unique...

Makes perfect sense now. Especially after noticing the wishbone in the stocking. Thanks for clarifying.

And in typical Grateful Dead fassion, theres a lot more....

Dice earrings rolling a 7...4 leaf clover.....rabbits foot...
But as with all perceived luck, someone usually tosses in a monkey wrench....

"The Greatest Story Ever Told", by Bob Weir and Robert Hunter has a line in it too...

"The one thing we need is a left-hand monkey wrench" ...so its all a cryptical envelopment... :)

Ordered em last night...cost me a whopping $4.79....I paid the extra shipping though at $8 because otherwise wouldda came in "great" shape, lol...
So works out to $6.50/side for custom...will see what the quality is, lol.

Stickers came today...pretty decent quality considering the price...here they are mounted and clearcoated...I should have trimmed em more with an Exacto, as the black background doesnt match the tank paint, but once mounted, I took a brush with same paint and just edged em...came out OK methinks...
