Well, i finally got my tires in. I couldn't get them locally, so i ordered them from MM Racing. Great guy, very helpful.

I'll get the tires put on this week if all goes well (Thanks Squanto)

Here is a pic of the bike put together without the tires

DBUCK,

I just used the rattle can for plastic spray paint. The greem is the stock plastic, I just taped the pattern for the black over it. I bought the paint at walmart. I used blue painters tape to tape it off. First I peeled off the stickers, then i scrubbed them inside and out. Finally I wiped them down with thinner. Taped them, wiped them again with thinner, and sprayed.

If I wasn't moving in a couple weeks I would help you out but I'm trying to finish up projects and clean/pack my garage.

That's right! San Diego, right? Good luck on the move

Sounds easy enough. I'm just gonna have to figure out how to change the purple seat cover to black. I've seen those seat covers on fleabay. Any chance you know how well they work? Something like this.

Thanks for the compliments guys. Ive never done aftermarket seat covers but with a good staple gun it should be easy.

No clear coat, that's just more work once it hits the deck...
