This is a discussion on Honda CB750F 1984 -> Café Project (first build) within the Project Builds forums, part of the Caferacer.net Forums category; It would rust faster than you would believe. If you are going for a polished finish, take a look at this: Its a chrome effect ...
It would rust faster than you would believe. If you are going for a polished finish, take a look at this:
Its a chrome effect paint, so you could have the plastic side panels and mud guards painted in the same material. Good luck with the moistening of Pussy and chocolate and strawberry effect though. I think your going to be very disappointed

I like my shocks like I like my women. Cheap and Chinese.
You might find more consolation on bobberforum.com, The guys here are hard-core cafe racer.
Pretty sure you can get a pussy, chocolate and strawberry flavoured coffee at Costa Coffee Racers.

and by "natural patina" do you mean you want the tins to have a shitty rusty brown? If so just mosey on down to the VW forums where they give you steps on how to strip the paint, mix salt, vinegar and peroxide and toss that lovely mixture to your tins and in 1-3hrs time you get some gnarly flash rust for that ultimate hipster pussy magnet.
chocolates and strawberries
That being said I think you are part of the problem and are just seeking to exploit a market because of current perceptions of cool and want nothing to do with this. I wish you luck, because I really don't wish anybody ill will, but I want no part of this in anyway. In fact I which you would just find something else to be gallery candy like a jaguar e-type or you know something that actually has a timeless design that people think looks fantastic.

I was trying to be helpful, but if we are really going to beat the poor sod up.
I kinda like the chia pet look for covering flaws in what would be otherwise perfect original paint.
@Geeko99 I love the fact that you raise me up to evil marketing standards and give me powers I didn't realize I possessed. Being a 29 year old tattooist with a painting habit I really didn't know that I was part of a scene nor a marketing plot to fuck you old school cafe racing enthusiasts over. Conspiracy aside. I respect your position and knowledge of these bikes and how they are supposed to be treated, built and used. My intention of asking you guys were solely for advise, and Im open to any good ideas (even the classic grass-paint job @trialrider ) Regarding the jaguar e-type, I already pimped one out of this world a couple of years back when jaguars were really hip cause of a madonna song or something. I don't really remember. But it made my summer.
That bike looks pristine, and I personally wouldn't touch it... Especially for your first game of dress-up.
