    Just so we have no uproar the owner intends to put a trike kit on this:wink:

    I think it's cool!

    What i did in school today,,,,,or what else i do for a living. Vintage bike paint work.

    The thread is on 'Airheads'

    Now remember,,,this is an economy trike project,,,,

    I used to do a lot of that stuff when i lived in California in the 80s. I do know how.
    All i do anymore is vintage resto paint work. I actually could make more money doing custom paint for that crowd but they drive me nuts. Having to be a fashion adviser and help someone pick just right shade of fusia for the pinstriping on their flame job got real old,,,,,,,and it was always a rush, "the bike show is in 2 weeks",,,,
    No,,,no ghost flames,,,:rofl:huh:rofl

    I do many of these BMW R90S jobs,,,rather custom,,,but factory custom. Did this for the BMW Owners club along with a new R1100S in 'silver smoke' years ago for the national rally in Spokane, they were the raffle bikes.

    I do recall you from back in the days when I was a member of the MOA and went to lots of their rallies.
