I've also decided to go with no chrome on this one so I'm most likely going to paint the fork legs and other chrome parts semi flat black then I'll pinstripe them with lime green and white pinstriping paint. I'm thinking about going with gloss black for the frame and airbrushing in some green realistic flames to complete the theme...
That sound like that will look excellent Dave, if the flames you airbrush on that bike are anything like the excellent work you've done on those helmets, that bike is gonna be sick......

Very excited for you on this build and looking forward to watching it come together for you.
I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
