    My frame choice mainly because I have a tank for this one. The 144 spoke might stay because they look closest to a chrome smoothie.

    Got my yellow powder swatches coming so I can get the right shade of yellow. Still got to get translucent red spark plug wires. And decide on a front fork leaning towards monarch style

    Looks like the yellow swatch I added offended and was removed. Apologies for that... it wasn't my intention to offend. I was just offering the colour yellow that was mentioned in the film :blush:

    Sorry, I was probably a bit over-eager on deleting that one... I just opened it up and there it was... :eek:

    Lets call it Pee Yellow shall we?

    Parts are looking awesome together!!!!!
    The yellow looks a little out of place right now, but I am sure it will blend right in when you get to the rest of the painting.
    That's a serious shifter!!!
