    Switch block paint flaking, stickers??

    I have a 1989 bike that is in great condition however both right and left switch block controls are flaking their paint. Obviously painting them black is no issue, however the small writing is going to be lost... as the lettering no is not “indented” it seems to have been printed on... Has...

    Just a few things I have done this week. A gen 1 in what's called a candy Brandywine. The gen 2 is a one off mixed color and the Harley tank is going to be a wall hanging g for the local Harley dealer. Pictures do not do this stuff justice.

    Paint Colors for 1986

    I have an '86 which is painted in a metallic maroon color. The quality of the paint looks as though it is original, although I have been told that although maroon was available in '86, 'metallic' maroon wasn't available until '92, so it may have been a good re-spray. The previous owner has had...

    KR Vmax Paint

    Well not a lot of room to work on a max faux cover but here is my Kenny Roberts theme for a Gen 1. I think it would look great with black scoops. I put the pearl over the stripes on this one. I did not do that on the bolt so on this one the stripes will pop in the day time with the gold pearl...
