well got the seat back it turned out pretty good,took the tail piece to work and got it primer now everything is primed, about ready to shot some paint.also my boy ( brandon ) brought down a snitz racing backcut trans. today and we pulled the stock one out and installed the new one on the basket,it has all 5 gears cut and a very nice job.



well that is about all i have gotten done on the d/bike did get the orangee one all buttoned up even started it yesterday it was 61 outside wanted to take it down the road but didnt want to get the tires muddy so had to sit there and listen to it come on summer

the offset is 5/8th but you have to have a wide swingarm to run the tire.brought the bodywork home to mock it up and i can sit back stare at it this helps me picture it for paint and graphics

back at work so here is some pics of the paint i started with some base white just to briten up the mopar sublime put down 3 coats of it , mixed up some crystal green pearl put 2 coats of that, and put 3 coats of clear done deal. as you can see it is pretty loud but i will take it home set it on the bike and star at it for awhile. sand it put some graphics on it to tone it down should be ok. i am having a hard time with it now not sure if i like it or not? :blink:





i havent got it outside so that will change it alittle. when i get home i will take some pics of it on the bike that will be the true test .

well here it is on the bike not so sure about it but iam not going to repaint so i guess i will live with it for the summer. i think after i put the graphics on it wont look so bad.its a drag bike so it needs to be loud,it looks alittle diff. outside also. now i need to figure out what to put on it?





also need to get the frt. rim painted, pain in the ass with the tire on it.

Personally...I like the green. Some graphics to break it up a little might be fine but I wouldn't do too much. Once you get the front rim painted I think it will take on a whole different look. Keep the shine to a moderate level so it doesn't take away from the color shceme and this will look great...
