Default Re: Vintage style chopper

Real nice work, nice finish, too. Odd frame. That paint helps take some of the modern out of the motor's appearance. If you don't mind sharing your technique I'd love to steal your idea for my Triumph... Did you paint it gold/brass, then black and rub away black, or just do black, then accent with gold/brass paint and rub away? I thought about doing some work on the side covers as well, depending on how thick they are, maybe rounding the edges with a file to take some of the sharpness out, and then polish. For that matter, the fins could use a little rounding as well.
