I've been playing around on my computer (while I'm supposed to be working) with pictures of my bike, adding different paint schemes. I've been thinking of giving by bike a name, doing a full paint job or simply adding a little flare (thats flare not "flames" - my bike is not on fire and it won't burn anything up... its a 250 :p)

So, show me what you've done or what you want to do.


This is the first one I did. I had way too much free time!

This one was a real pain to try and get the two pictures sized together, but I finally got it. This could turn out to be a real looker.

for the blacked out heat shield did you use regular automotive paint and clearcoat or did you have to use like some kind of heat resistant paint?

Its a flat black paint. Make sure you get a high temp paint made for engine blocks, bbq grills, or other high temp applications.
The How-To on this is pretty easy:

1. Remove 2 Bolts for heat shield.
2. Clean heat shield.
3. Lightly sand heat shield.
4. Shake Can.
5. Point and Spray.
6. Let Dry.
7. Re attach with 2 screws.

got this from another site

Dan,
That looks really good, I may have to try that on the pipe to my 2Bros can.

Gremlin,
I think the black would look great even on a green bike, theres already a lot of black down there (frame). Unless you get (hi-temp) Kawa green that exactly matches the plastic, I don't think it will look good.

As you can tell, I'm from Texas. So I've been playing around with a few different Texas ideas. This is one of the Republic flags. Simple blue field with a gold star.

Looks great, I love the Polonesian tribal art. You have it on both sides, I assume. Is it painted on or is it vinal?
Nice can (2Bros)

Wow, thats photoshopped?! Thats awesome! I thought you had that painted on. I didn't even notice the vent was covered up (under the whale). That really would look good.

I know you can get perfectly matched colors from color rite. My question is do you think I could just go crazy painting whatever I wanted ie chain guard, nuts, bolts, mirrors etc etc?
