anyways spraying the power and bakeing it is something a 8 year old girl could do but preping it can be easy or days of work.

at my work to get my tank done it would be about few hours at 100.99$ an hour so around 350-400$ and to power coat a bike frame it would be about 2 hours + powerder witch is CHEAP so about 230$

right now im playing with the idea this winter to build a 1500cc 6 cyclinder two stroke chopper using 2 kawie H2 engines and getting a extar 2ed cyclinder case and using it to spline the 2 canks togetter in the in side so it would be a in line 6 two stoke then using 6 cr250 fmf pipes and winde them throw the frame.

hears some pictures of my cr500 af

i won't post finsihed pics for legal reasons (ilke to run a lot and only my self and my boss now what my bike looks like) even my boss dose not have know what deacls my bike has right now, it spends it life coverd till i want to cause ....................

its a 2002 cr 125 frame with a 1986 cr500 engine in it
And it's very chiney, like a mirror! Nice job.
