Default Re: Jinxed

This bike was originally planned to be a copy of the 'Billy Bike'. The one ridden by Dennis Hopper in Easy Rider. I built the Captain America clone and I wanted to have both of the movie bikes. But, I got side tracked by the neat factory paint job and went another direction and left it black. Maybe that was my mistake.

Maybe, just possibly, the bike is rebelling and trying to tell me that it wants to be painted orange with gold flames to match its brother bike. Maybe, just maybe, I should tear it down, strip the black metal flake paint off and shoot it orange.
Do you think that would chase away the curse that this bike seems to have on it?

Good summer project if nothing else.
