Uh... No yellow rims, but I would like to do something like this...
I wonder how many years it would take me to finish.

I'm tired of people expecting to see Mike Sanchez ride when they see the Orange bike on the track and then notice somethings wrong when I roll out

Plus, it's a garage, rattle can project so not too much expense involved.
Just labor

I agree with SwiftE, it needs to be changed. The current paint is ok but it's Mike's scheme. But Swift, don't copy anybody else's bike scheme. Create your own. Pick 2 colors you like together and go from there. Are you going to paint it yourself?

Yea, I'm just getting color combos from other bikes.
And yes, I'm going to try and do the repairs and paint myself with some help from my friends.

I have an awesome painter that is very affordable if you decide to have someone else paint it.

$500 is what he normally charges, he works for Lexus so his work is excellent.

He is painting my bike now I will post the after pics soon.

I agree just pick a couple of colors and roll with it , however I think we need to change the color of the rims everyone has black ones be unique..a little bit of stripper and sanding and we can have them changed in no time

i agree, it helps seperating yourself from others when looking through track pics....not too many white bikes. i paint cars/bikes and do body work for a living....if you have any questions about anything, i'd be happy to give you a nudge in the right direction.

Thanks for the offer, I'll be diving into this project here pretty soon.

I just don't know what colors to go with :eh:

I do like the RED/ BLACK/ YELLO Combo
