Do something custom without all the stickers. The stickers look cheesy IMO.

Anyway, I think I like the Seven Stars better than the Cabin look. The more I look at the Seven Stars pics the more I like it. I was trying to picture it going around a local track like MSR or something and I think it'd look good out there!

his is white...he had a pic of it up for awhile. That is why he specializes in the euro stripes. He is set up for it. I tried to get 03 stripes for mine through him but he was not set up for it, so i tried to get silver straight stripes and he didn't like the idea and I got blown off. I tried calling him and e mailing him several times after that with no response. I finally gave up.

I guess it could have been kingwood

Other than routine maintenance (fluids, plugs, etc) about the only thing you'll have to change is the stator. There is a guy in California that has over 100k miles on his RC. I haven't even seen an RC that needed the valves adjusted when being checked.

Now watch witchdoctor tell me his needed adjusted. :laughing6

Sorry man, I didn't know you were lookin to re-paint the 51. I bought my plastics already painted with the colin edwards paint scheme off of ebay. It was a good deal I couldn't pass up so I went for it. I like the seven stars look too.
