  1. Rattlecan flat this go around I'm afraid, but looks pretty damn good for what it is. Unfortunately my garage can't do 220V and I'm a too cheap to buy another compressor, so no fancy 2K paintstuffs on my "budget build."

    No refractory going on here yet, maybe someday when I buy that forging house I've been saving up for :D

    dO-bOy Woohooo!

    dang i reallllly like those fuel tanks.
     

  6. Thanks guys.

    I'm not a huge fan of color coordinated efforts unless that color happens to be black, I've been known to wear green shorts with a red shirt before ;)

    Any suggestions?

    Next up is painting the rear frame loop, wiring/ tail light mount, etc, then ride! I'll tear down and paint the frame and detail after the summer.
