thats ok if you dont ,and thanks for your honesty! I hoped for "A REACTION" in my view, building of anything,it has to cause, a reaction ...I want people to look at it and say it sucks or they like it.

Im happy with a reaction neg or pos.What I wouldnt want is indifference, then I have failed

If I left the tank just clear coated, would have looked like I didnt have paint.I like the stripes its old school and fun, besides I doubt,I will see another one like it.And I like that more!

needs some old school pinstriping. Definatly a black, white, or gold border stripe (could doo yellow too but then people would call your bikes mcdonalds racers). Also if it were me I would have roughted up the tank a little more with a da sander just to give it an interesting texture.

Bull if you want I do pinstriping so uf you send me the tins I'll lay down some lines for you - I do von dutch style not kafka (feathry 70's Gay) style. Maybe a nice set of lines on the headlight, around the gas cap and on the tail. Now that I have some free time turnaround will be fairly quick. shoot me an e-mail you know the address.

Also, eastwood sells a damasescing (engine turning - sp) kit that is pretty easy to use although time consuming. You could do a little section in the knee area kinda like reverse knee pads.

Otherwise looks good.

well... you dont understand I can do all that...its not in the look I was after .you have to see them in person they are DA with 8o grit then cleared they look bad ass.
I didnt take out dents ,I didnt detail the stripes or go crazy ..just simple.restrained "BAD_ASS" in a 50's/60's "B" movie way.What was the elvis movie "SPIN OUT " I think was the name all those sixties racecars with out of sync shifting sounds.

EVEN better thick "RUSS MYERS FILMS" RUN PUSSY CAT...! Kill ! Kill ! Kill!!!! ah now we are talking.Look that film up boys .

The stripes ,very Cool and I like them.They need nothing.Just Purfect
Plain and "SIMPLE" with "Attitude" and they have plenty to spare.


But thanks for your comments .
P.S. Ive been to von dutchs shop in cali. Geeto you should put up a site with your work and do some on the side.

working on it. Severly hampered by the fact that I don't own a digital camera.
