Well, if you're going to be picky, how about this: http://boise.craigslist.org/mcy/3267553528.html

That's looking better. Best design yet except for the 'thing at the back of the tank' looks like a chipped tooth.

Hey, what about some Honda wings in the white part of the tank? About medium size....not too small but not too big???
Hmmm, maybe not, because your knees will go there and wings might get covered up with tank grippy stuff anyway. You could put small wings on the red part of the tank.

Make that lower blue line just a bit thicker near the front wheel but keep the same lines in the back. I like how you did those lines near the pillion the more I look at it. I'm no design expert, but you're SO close.

$32.00 later..... Not bad for a paint job. We will have to see how it turns out. I am painting the wheels white too. I have a second set so I am not worried if it doesn't turn out.

Wait till you see what I doo with that silver metallic paint and the blue XMetals paint.

Amazing! With nothing more than a few cans of paint and basic hand tools, in two hours you've managed to turn an 84 into an 86 - WITH Lockhart fairing.

Hmmm - I think I need to bring my old pickup down to see you.

As someone who's rattled a bike before: A couple suggestions:

Lots of coats. The more thin coats the better. Make sure the cans and your surface are warm. You want that paint nice and sticky.

Sand Sand Sand Whatever the surface looks like when you sand it, is how the paint is going to look when its on the bike. Make sure you take your time and get it smoooth

Gas is not your friend Gas will destroy a spray painted bike. Be careful anytime you fill up not to dribble.

Very nice job on the VF!! Good inspiration for me. I hope mine looks close to as good as that.

Also, great advice not just for me but all who decide to go the path of the rattle can. Thanks....

Alright, here we go..... It is not perfect, but for a rattle can job I am happy.
Still need to paint the wheels white and fix a mess I made on the tank...

That looks fantastic! Good job!

Just remember you'll mess up that tank paint the moment you hit it with fuel. Once you do, DO NOT wipe it off- just let it dry as is and it won't look as bad.

Thanks! I am going to be careful with the gas....

Here are some better pictures, my cell takes crappy ones. You can see I got my lines to match up and let me tell you.....that was not easy. Also, check out the blue where you can see the iridescence if the metallic paint and blue candy overcoat. I will clear over everything as soon as I fix the few screwups I made. Then I will paint the wheel, and put a iridescence blue stripe on the outer portion of the rim. I have seen this on these bikes and it looks pretty cool!!

Check out the gas valve....




You can see where I have an accident on the tank....I was almost done, then a breeze came and blew the newspaper right on top of the wet tank....I was not a happy camper!!


I put some of the white paint to seal it and I will re-sand it later and put the red back on when I color sand the rest of the tank. It will come out fine...


The tail section looks good too, but I need to smooth out the inner corners a bit.




I also painted the visor with the blue candy coat...not too bad! Adds contrast...



Better look at the blue...

That's pretty cool man, you've really turned that bike around for sure.

Nice work. that droopy can bothers me.

I'd get a torch or something, heat up that can and bend it up to parallel the body work and then put a two stroke stinger on it...but that's just me. Sorta like DG performance chambers on an RZ350...what the hell was he thinking!

would look more racy..the stinger was a joke, but it would look hot.

BTW: they are not kidding about rattle can paint jobs. if gas gets on it, it will cause some damage. I bet there is some vinyl company that could cut you some clear vinyl w/ a hole for the gas cap...much like that side grip stuff racers put on the side of their tanks?

you don't have to do that, but IMHO, angling that exhaust upward a bit would be pretty cool.

Thanks! Yeah, I just started noticing that too, about the cans. Maybe they were not as visible before with the black rims. I'll see what I can do about that..... Thanks for the suggestion.

About the tank.....I will put a coat of clear that will resist gas. :-)
