    Looks good. I rode a passport when I was 15. The bike was the baby blue with the white fenders and it had milk baskets on the sides and the front.

    You have really changed its personality.

    Great another small Honda I am gonna have to have. You have inspired me to force one on my wife. If she never rides it so be it. Great job cannot wait to see it out on the road.

    Awesome! I've been trying to get my boss to sell me his Passport but he won't budge.

    Questino: What did you use to paint the plastic? I have a Honda Met that I'm looking to do some body work on and could use some advice. How are the plastic parts holding up so far?

    The plastics are holding up great, Honestly I didn't care about the look I wanted it to look old and beat which it most certainly does. Im not sure what paint, If i remember correctly "Gloss Black". If I were you, I would powder coat everything thats the only thing I wish I would have done differently. Thanks for the compliments means alot.

    Cheers

    Hey Chris,

    Sent you a pm as well...wondering what size tires you have on there and if they're stock wheels.

    Thanks!
