My Pic - Colin Edwards Stars and Stripes

So here are some pics of my bike, Firstly I sorted out the dog of a loom then some moderate upgrades, nothing too mental and finally I painted her.

I did the whole bike, mechanics and paint - no stickers here, its all custom mixed paint and airbrush.

Let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Stu

Custom Creation.

Your paint job ? In one word: Stunning !
I couldn't even think of painting a wall, let alone an entire beloved bike !

Did you paint your oem plastic? The upper sure looks like it fits the same as the chinese sets... Not calling you a liar, just curious as to why somebody would waste such talent and man hours on body panels that do not even fit correctly

Yep - all original OEM panels and they all fit perfectly.

I've seen the chinese shit and wouldn't ever entertain sticking it on any bike.

Love the gold wheels sir !!! I have the same Sp1 wheels as well with almost exact color match, but..... "others" here will disagree with our choice of gold parts.

Why are your headlights bulging out from your upper? Is that just your covers? How are those covers attached?

They are indeed headlight covers - these are attached with sticky back velcro pads which come supplied with the headlights.

The Gold wheels are a lovely Candy i mixed - all House of Kolor, Zenith Gold Base with Metajul on top, then six layers of Pagan Gold and Spanish Gold Candy
