I'm always afraid to use that color combo in anything because it brings Halloween to mind too easily. Don't know how you did this, but you pulled it off without having the "Halloween theme syndrome". That's a great looking bike with a fantastic paintjob. Congrats :mrgreen:

that stuff is tougher than I thought.

I was saving these for a long time, and finally found where they belong, on my bike of course.

those are my new rat rod rocket boosters. I'm installing these huge red leds in the larger thrusters for tail lights, but maybe not by the end of the build. the wires and power supply are hard to conceal. I just need to figure it out. I guess it's true, a true rat rod is never finished.

nice job. Fender paint is sweet. Great bike to take on a Sunday cruise or a Wed pub pedal.
