Awesome work!

Jim,
I still need Bridgestone Patches, B stickers for the front finder, Bridgestone stickers for the lower and the South Central Race Center Stickers for the lower.

Tim (Firemalt) should have contacted you about design format for printing.

If you don't mind, give us a cost breakdown. I would really like to set something like this up and was just wondering what type of expense this is. I won't be racing but want to look good on track days.

bodywork (depending on brand, new/used) - $350+
paint - $350+

i'm sure something exactly like that would've cost about $900-$1200 (track bodywork and paint)

lookin good john/tom

Thanks, I was just curious what this run.

This is a very sharp looking bike. I will watch for it when it runs at the local races.
Best of luck you guys.

Bodywork is Cycleskins, and it was right around $525

Paint, well, that's a whole 'nuther story. It's got PPG 2k system paint and clear... a bit pricey.

Tony is able to get much better prices on paint since he's a professional shop.

This job was also sanded/ buffed with extra clear so it has a more "showroom" type look, unlike other race bikes you may see.

Thanks for the props, but they all belong to John, it was his ideas and colors, I just did the grunt work.
