Keith , I get your drift, I was hoping for more votes based on my bikes 16 year age being a factor. By far oldest in the group.

My son looked at the bike the other day and told me it was damn close
to showroom new. If you had seen where it was and what it looked like when I purchased it you would be floored....

Pics alone do not do this bike justice.

I think your bike looks awesome, color scheme, mods, etc. I could only imagine how good that paint scheme would look in the sun up close. You should be very proud of the finished product.

You are spot on. The pics no mater how you try do not capture the metal flake depth that pops in this paint.

All the photos look bland like Solid color scheme. Hold on there partner! No so on this puppy. In the sun it sparkles like a diamond.

Similar to those boat hulls that give off that nice sparkle when it hits the sun just right... Yeah you know what I'm talking about now....

Cool huh...
