Some of you know that I was going to sell/part out my bike...well one day I decided I was going to take what I had and rebuild it...yeah pretty stupid but almost done.

What it looked like when I parted it out


What I had after I sold a bunch of stuff


Here it is now. I have most of the parts still getting little things here and there. She should be ready to go N the next couple weeks here. Some stuff I still have to put on. My boy painted it a silver with a light flake and the wheels and some other stuff is blue.

Umm... you HAD a nice looking bike to start with... then you sold parts off... so that you can... find parts to ... rebuild it.

Personally I liked it the original way.

You'd have been better off keeping the bike whole and selling off 4 or 5 thousand of your porn pics. We'd have all bought.

Re: more pics from today

WIth a frame motor, swingarm and sub-frame... you had a good start. I'm surprised your fame didn't sell.

the color looks good so far with the blue wheels and exhaust. Are you gong to do a decal kit to break up the silver?
You peeps are crazy.

I was going to sell the whole bike, but I thought I could make out with all the aftermarket stuff that I had.

Yeah I'm going to do blue decals on it, nice and clean.

To be honest I was tired of the yel/blk that I had for 3 years, but I couldn't tear myself to repaint the bike. I had no choice this time with multy colored panels from Ebay.

Looking good, can't wait to see the finished project. I sold baby last month, couldn't ride it because of my back. On the bigger and better things, M3 for next year. Hopefully everything is going good with the business.

Re: more pics from today

Hey Wayne, how you like the Micron? I'm contemplating one. How much did you give for it if you don't mind? I am trying to find the cheapest price but hadn't found anything that really stood out. Are you not afraid that thing will get too hot and mess that paint up being that close? I was told I'd better go with a carbon fiber due to the heat off the cansiter dulling the finish on the paint. Is that true or do you know? Thanx...J

I paid around 340 for mine.

I had a Hindle that sat up to about the same height at the end of the tail with no heat problems. I'm not worried about this one melting anything.

Actually my boy painted my bike at the dealership he works at N the wash bay. Really...lol it turned out really good though. It's not perfect but when you look at it you would be really surprised on the job he did. I took Auto Body & Paint N school so I know what to look for and it still looks good to me. This silver flake just pops N the sunlight and even N the garage it looks real nice. If you could see it you can see what I"M talking about. There are some things here and ther you can point out, but the overall job is good. Once I get the logos on it, it's going to be HOT. Pictures don't really do it justice.

I like it better than stock because with the clear this just has a better shine and gleam to it.

I know some have way extreme and expensive paint so I'm not thinking this is all that by any means.

If you guys want some paint work hit me up, we can probably do a whole bike for less than a body shop would do with shipping.
