    Over all I think it came great. Was stressing on not doing the pinstripe white. But should pop with the new black and silver emblems. And buffed cap.

    I did all the stripping and then it took me about 2 months to find someone that was a bike guy that I would trust to do the paint. I had the color codes I wanted to use. But no I did not do the paint. If your in PA west chester area he's a really cool guy and does great work.
