Lookin good Michael! It is your own ride now, not a copy of any other, and that is always a nice thing to have. Is it a candy apple or pearlescent type paint?

It is metallic, hard to see in the pics. Different from Sun No sun, its like having two bikes.
it is actually called ELECTRIC ORANGE from the Kia cars. I looked at many many colors and always came back to some sort of this version.
Thanks.

Re: Paint pics

I like the paint. Very nicely done!

Now for a bit of criticism.......... Do you think it's polite to post a picture of her with her skirts off???? I can't think of anything homelier than a nekkid LT! It's amazing the difference a little bit of painted plastic makes!

Anybody familiar with the early 50's Ford color called Sherwood Blue? I would love to paint a bike this color some day.

Again, very nice job!

Re: Paint pics

Great job, Zeke. Almost makes it look like a Gold Wing.
Oops. Shouldn't have said that. Just envy speaking.
Really do like the color. And again, great job.

Very nice Zeke, very nice indeed. I like the darker color on the fairing skirt too.

Re: Paint pics

Paint job looks beautiful and different. Before assembly is a good time to give her a bath!

The only think that I would change would be the addition of clear turn signal indicator covers Use with the orange bulb inside. Orange cover and red bike, (just my opinion) don't blend as well...
