Tank is all done

I got a dented tank off ebay for a steal. I had the dent taken out and had it repainted black. O...it looks so good. Can't wait till everything gets here and the bike is complete. Stay tuned. Right now, the bike looks like a train wreck... She shall return to her former glory...and better.

I'm trying to decide wether or not to put the wings on. I'm leaning toward just leaving it as is and just putting some stompgrip on. I do not like riding without stompgrip. Thoughts??

The small yellow or white wings with the HONDA logo should be on the tank.

The big ones won't be missed I think........

I wont ride without my stompgrip either. Go with black, I'm afraid clear on top of high gloss black may show bubbles, even tiny one's. imo.

I'm not a fan of gold, but in this case, it would look tits!

Well, being that the bike is going to be black and white once its completed, all I could really put on would be white wings...If it were going to be all black, gold wings all day! For now, black with black stompgrip. Hmmm...maybe black wings??
