I just did my Foreman 4 wheeler in the stuff, (from yellow to camo) I sanded it with 280 grit and then wipped it down with Liquid Deglazer ( get it in paint dept at lowes) I was not interested in shine so did not do as much prep but it came out good and after first ride it is holding on well.

I think it looks great Ken. It looks like a professional shop production. Well done. Black on red would look good too.

yup - mine have just one scratch after one season - and that was a big off. Picture is a year old - right now the poor thing is in pieces in my basement. Shoulder still hurts from that off, so I haven't had any real drive to put it back together and repaint that right side panel.

Hey Thunder,
What brand and size tank bag is that? It looks very convenient for dual sporting.

Thanks!

The tank bag is a Wolfman Enduro Bag. Works great and stays on without too much sliding around while in the dirt. Highly recommended.

Unbelievable deal - not my bike but look at this

This one is for sale in Austin.
Extremely well-done complete conversion , and it is underpriced IMHO by nearly 500 bucks

http://austin.craigslist.org/mcy/342221825.html

SOMEBODY needs to buy this if its not gone already

I like it. Where did you get it and how does it affect airflow - does it help?

The more I look at the farring the more I think it is the rectangle opening for the lights, maybe a little rake angle ( but then that would bring more air back on rider) or how about a pair of classic XR650 baja bug eyes,

I will say this, hats off to you for workmanship and inginuity, it is easy for me to be criticle cause I aint doing it. So once again, this is nice workmanship for sure..

Yeah. I have a 10.5kg Eibach spring for that. Works great with ESP suspension. Even take small jumps.
