WHAT PAINT DID YOU USE ON YOUR SPEEDO, IGNITION, AND HEADLIGHT.

Im looking to do this to my bike b/c it looks sweet.


Whats the best paint to use on this project to resist peeling and fading???

Just painted mine. I'm definately not a painter and this is nowhere near as nice as all the prep that bang did, but I thought a wrinkle finish would look good so here it is. Profesionaly done would be even better! I plan on doing the rear pully also(powdercoat). When I had the covers off couldn't help but think , lose the covers and go with spikes or something metal instead?

Looks pretty good from the picture. What did you do to get the wrinkle finish?

Looking good.

I personally plan to keep some chrome accents here and there, but I do like the flat look.

What would look totally cool would be to somehow get the forks anodized or black chromed!

Black/gunmetal chrome would look amazing
