They aren't mint paint but they aren't horrible.If you want any of the fairings I will sell them for $25 each.

I will use the money to buy an expensive lunch.

Almost got the motor out and it's looking crazy.Just need to go find the biggest allen head socket i've ever used for 1 of the last bolts.

Once the frame is out all the unnecessary brackets will get shaved down including the fairing stays and the headlight brackets.

For frame color im kinda leaning towards this.

Then again I wanna lean away from it looking like an 848.So not really sure what route to go yet but I have time to think about it.All my gear is black with white/red hints so don't wanna stray away too much.

The red frame might work..... kinda depends on how vibrant everything else is, and how it looks in the light. By itself, kinda "bla".... as a package it could work though.

As for the seats... just PLEASE use a seat that looks KIND of modern and fits it really well. Too many people slap on a round headlight and a bulbous vintage looking cafe seat and call it perfection. Some of those seats simply won't match a modern bike!

It might have just been the colors that caught my attention, but....

I know you didn't ask for my opinion, but this is the internet so. . .I'm not digging the wrinkle red (at this time) either. I've seen some of your work, and I know you will impress me at the end of the day, but that red doesn't do much for me. Can't wait to see more!

Update

Been waiting on my gas tank and fender to get painted.Until then I can't really do much but sit patiently.I need the tank on the bike so the tail can be finalized. With tank in place I can make sure its at the correct angle and all.

Also got new gaskets for the cam covers among other small bits.

When the tank is done I'll get a new pic up.

Edit: I changed the red frame btw.

The flat red looks good! Pair that with a pearl white tank and that will be pretty sick!
