    Never did update on my paint... I'll jack this thread one more time. Haha Found a guy practically down the street that does custom bikes. Charged me $300 for final prep color and matte clear.

    Did a bunch of other stuff; bars, turn signals, speedo relocation , tons of cleaning and refinishing the chrome and aluminum.

    Then over the weekend I added a Burly Brand sissy bar. They say it's only for 04 and up but i did some measuring and figured I could made it work on my 03 with shorter bolts and some brute force.

    Next up is some wide whites and possibly powdercoating the rims red. Thoughts on that?

    Thanks! Hahaha People eother love the idea or loathe it. Since I painted it a flat metallic it screams hot rod. Reminds me of a lot of shop trucks. That's where I got the idea.

    It'd be a gamble to see if it turned out well. I've gambled a lot on this bike and won so far... o_O

    Yes on the white walls and I'd have to pass on the red wheels.

    As far as my shit goes I haven't touched it in a while. I just haven't been motivated to work on it.

    Maybe some consistent nice weather will change that. We'll probably never know. :(

    Really nice work on that! Maybe one day I'll fix up the two projects I have in my garage.
