    Nice, nimble and slow...

    Brakes are pretty good for me though. :thumbup

    Green BMW is green.

    Teal. I just hate the color...

    It looks like an unkempt pool.

    I wanted to sell the dang thing, but I have decided to keep it and make it pretty.

    Needed paint badly.

    New vietnamese ebay special seat.

    Crap.

    The foam was made up of packaging foam. Rock hard. Ouch for my butt.

    Cheapest vinyl ever. Tore at the edge while trying to install.

    I ended up reshaping and reusing the original seat with the ebay vinyl crappy cover...

    And the bike is back on the road for now. :thumbup:

    The paint looks great. The bike runs great. The weather is great.
