Default Started tearing her down, new paint this weekend.

I'm not sure how many more nice weekends we have left so I started taking it apart today. I was surprised how easy it was to break down, had the sheet metal off in about 20 minutes.
Sure would make a sweet bobber. I don't have the heart to hack her up though.


She's naked, my buddy's Softie was eyeballing her sexy rear and I didn't like it so I covered her up.


Got the clear off of the tank and front fender. I'll get the rear fender tomorrow and spray the sealer on.


I'll update this thread as the weekend goes on. She'll be black and green by Sunday.

A 40 gallon Ingersoll Rand compressor, a Devilbiss siphon feed sprayer for the color/clear and a Grex Genesis XG airbrush.

I have a red frame. Wish it were black so I could get creative. Good luck

I wish mine was red. You can still be creative, yellows, oranges, blues, and some shades of purple. Can't go wrong with red and silver either. Go for it, don't let the frame color stop you.

Nothing exciting. Had some errands to take care of this morning. I got the rear fender prepped and sealer layed down.

Got the colors sprayed today. I had originally planned on doing green ghost flames, but had a last minute change of plans and wanted more green and went with a more simple design that I think worked out well.










Still have to clear it, not sure the humidity will cooperate tomorrow though. Supposed to rain but the hard part is over with now.

Thanks saint. I like the that a simple layout worked. I'm still thinking I may break out the airbrush and ghost some flames in the open black areas on the tank and rear fender.
