we're gonna hit the frame with a sanding disc and then powder clear the frame...then the tins will be matte black (to match the springer) with windows showing the bare metal underneath.....dishes on the tank will be left bare metal...and oh yeah...we're running a tangelo flake stripe down the middle of the fender, tank and oil tank with some accent pinstriping....and least thats the plan right now

I'm sure you know you'll need to put an adhesion promoter down on the bare metal before clearing right?

I like the flow of the bike, unlike others, I do not like paint getting in the way of the lines of a bike. I like simple classic paint, not over the top graphics.
That being said....it's not my bike
