    W.I.P for the winter months, and I need ideas for Paint. I am thinking BMW Silber metallic with maroon stripes, and redoing the wheels in a silver powdercoat.The Alternative would be something identifiable with the ACE cafe.....Distinctive Base color that compliments the funky red (Gufstafsonn)shield, w checkerboard stripe down the tank and rear cowl.
    Replacing pushrod seals at the moment. ( heads were done at 31 K miles w ss valves ) hatch marks are still "factory fresh", with visible hatchmaks on the inside cyl walls. rear drive has been resplined, trans plate installed and reshimmed. ss brake lines , So the mechanicals are darn near perfect.

    A shorter rear fender would go a long way in the looks department.:D

    Good Eye!
    muffs are on the shop floor (push rod seals replacement require dropping the exhaust n headers.

    re:rear fender ...I will try to locate both front and rear fenders so I can cut into them .I hate cutting up good parts.
    Also thinking about a cafe 1!pc seat vs the solo seat/cowl.
    ?
    Any ideas on paint ...

    Ducati Metallic green from the infamous 750 ss ?
    Porsche Carrera Ivory w from RSR B Gruppen fame?
    Gulf Blue/Orange from the Ford GT
    Dark slate grey/maroon

    Where are the creative minds out there?
