I know I don't want any chrome. All black.
Sorry, chrome is mandatory. This is a Muscle Bike build off. It can't be a muscle bike without chrome.

Take it down to the platers and have them dip the entire thing in chrome. (You might want to remove the tires first, although that would be cool)

I'm in the same boat. The bars are painted silver, and the sissy bar is raw. Nothing but the crank is chrome in the whole bike.

Finally figured out a way to mount the ihome. I have a box full of these brackets, and all I had to do was drill some holes.









Now time to strip down, clean up, and GET TO PAINTING!

With the ihome mounted, I'm now happy with the modifications. TIME TO STRIP! :mrgreen:

Something was bothering me about the seat mount and how that tube stuck straight up.



All better!



All stripped down. Not the normal end result...

Well, still going with kawasaki green and black, but my local ace hardware only had a neon green. Curious to see how it looks!

Cool! From what I understand some neon colors can fade slightly faster than standard colors so probably best to store it out of the sun when you are done just to be safe... :wink:

Luke.
I keep all of my bikes indoors! (I actually need to take a picture of my bike room. Its a bit crazy!)

Little update: Got my grips from porkchop!



And I'm starting to take excess bits off, like the brake mounts on the fork:





Its a ton of work!
