Better than the old one?
Which flavor of breakin philosophy are you using?

And, most importantly: Since it's just a temporary paint job, are you going to turn your daughter loose with the transformer stickers?
Yes, the engine is tip top...thank goodness! As for break-in, I did my research and found two schools of thought. Slow and easy, and ride like you stole it.

I am alternating, riding her like normal....but keeping the RPMs from staying in one spot for too long. I started with short trips to warm up, then let it cool. I have ridden to Salem and back twice this week and all over with no problems.

No Transformer stickers.... lol I have to do some repair work on the plastics, but I plan on something special and closer to original. You will see....

I've heard there's a 12-step program for the condition.

Never felt like walking that far, though.

Dang, this one is a mess though. The other one was clean. I'd still like to get my hands on it, and restore it to good condition. I bet he'd take 400.00 for it.

In that shape he REALLY should take WAY less - but probably won't. I'd REALLY find out about the title issue, though - he started out wanting 700 for it more than a month ago. If the title IS in his name, he's had plenty of time to fix the 'lost title' thing....

I agree....maybe not such a good deal.

On another note.....I have my paint scheme!! I have searched high and low and this little gem has called me back every time. I hope to have it done soon. I want to paint the wheels white too.

Not bad. I think I'd try to get the horizontal stripes parallel, and the 'hockey stick' portion at the ends shaped/slanted the same. Maybe a dual (red/blue) stripe on the chin fairing. But it's YOUR bike, and YOUR rattlecans.

And you left off the transformers stickers.

Yes, that 2nd one is better but could still use something else....I'm just not sure what.

No, that's the 3rd one. I like the 2nd one.

Now that I think about it, I really like the Hurricane lines and how they come up at about a 30* angle. Can you incorporate that into your design??? Maybe the colors starting out from a point on the chin fairing and each color getting progressively wider near the top/rearward part???

Stick with the red/white/blue them whatever you do!


Check out the 1990 cbr1000 Hurricane here: http://www.motorera.com/honda/h1000/...n/hurrican.htm
It's not what I described necessarily, but I really like that. Maybe spark your imagination?

I know...just teasing. :-)

I think once you add the contrast from the black engine, radiator, white wheels it will stand out better. Sure, I can angle the lines. Let me play with the pic some more and see what it looks like

Ok, I had my angular thing backwards. This is more what I'm referring to: http://ebardp48.smugmug.com/gallery/...N6NNy&lb=1&s=A
The colors terminate in a point near the pillion but start out wide near the front wheel. Dunno, food for thought....
