  • 2007 Roadstar Bike Transformation

    This is my Roadie, paint job took me about 2 weeks to complete, everything is individually drawn and taped onto the bike, then I finished it off with cling wrap and pearlized blue to give it that wet bowling ball look within the individual accents. I am glad it is so far away from the red I started with, I always hated the color.

        I wish they would too, it would have been a heck of a lot cheaper. Between coats and sanding and whatnot. It's got about 8 coats of clear on it; and apparantly it's made from the teeth of dragons or something based on the cost!

            That's some sweet paint work, right there! I've NEVER had the patience to work that hard to prep something. I need my gratification too quickly, and can only turn wrenches, so I always go for the mechanical mod, and either take something off, or put something else on. I like what you're able to do!!! That's very nice!

                That looks damn good. I like the color choice.

                  Thank You everyone....patience is a virtue I have yet to master, but with snow here in Indiana had nothing else to do It seems I am always buying something or doing something to it. A radio sound system is next or a new seat and then perhaps custom hard bags, but I gotta get the bank account padded up again first or the old lady will kill me.

                      Yeah, just many layers and ALOT of sanding and clearcoat. In hindsight I might not have added so many colors but it turned out well. It actually has 5 colors in it, including the black.
