We used a single stage polyurethane paint for everything. Wheels, frame, tank etc.

My dad sprayed it for us, he's a pro.

Pics tonite!

Thanks guys. The red accents he's doing so far are wheel stripes, red levers, red foot pegs and maybe a red and or silver stripe or two on the tank. Once we get it all assembled, he'll decide on the red stripes etc. No upside down forks yet, maybe he'll do that over this next winter.

ff20133, if you have a build, start a build thread fool. We all want to see.

And yeah, everyone does black, but it doesn't matter because it always looks so damn good. And, there aren't many streetfighters around here anyway...even with it being it all black, it still stands out of the crowd.

We're going to put some more stuff together on wednesday, hopefully get it back on it's wheels.

Getting her started for the first time. Sounds like it's running a little lean at the lower rpm's, has a slight stumble/hesitation. The header wasn't bolted down all the way, so it has some exhaust leaks. All will be fixed of course. I think it sounds freaking awesome, and looks even better. :D

The jardine can that's on it will be moved, it's kind of at a funny angle at the moment.
