Gee, 1988 for the marlboro DR800? Do you suppose someone saw that when they created the icon designed XC? Duh, sure looks like it, don'it?

My how our tastes have changed over the years. I'm building a 70's cafe racer and trying to figure out colors. Some labels for color schemes over the years...

retro
nostalgic
dark or blackout
chrome
flourescent/dayglow
matte finish
murals, pinstripes, graphics
pearl, metalflake, metallic, cameleon

I started doing custom paint work about 1975. Anyone remember the 'van craze'? My favorite paints you cannot even buy anymore here in CA.


EDIT: BTW, the vid is cute, entertaining. thumbs! "new guy"... LOL.

I assume your joking. That was the first beak. BMW & Triumph copied Suzuki.

I am, hence the at the end....

BMW accused Triumph of stealing the idea from them when in fact, they stole it from Suzuki.

Captive Nuts

Looks the same as the ones I got with the Triumph Radiator Guard.

Yep, they are. Kinda pricey for what they are, must be made from some exotic material.





Almost forgot, I got it from BIKEBANDIT.COM

Givi luggage racks and cheap plastic ammo boxes from Amazon. Top case is a Pelican 1520 with a Touratech rack under it.

The clips are very similar to j-nut fender clips for cars. My mechanic gave me one and it worked well, even though it was SAE.

When I watched the Icon video, I really wondered how someone gets that good on a bike? Especially so young? I can only imagine killing myself in the process long before I ever got to where they are at
