Take your tins to off to have them painted at the start of spring.

nuff said.

Ok, maybe not.

I sent both seats to Mean City Cycles to be redone & I ordered what looks like a really cool chameleon paint for the bike and I plan to give a review (with pics) on both when I can. The seats are back but the tank, fenders & side covers wont be shot til tomorrow & sanding & buffing will delay me a couple more days.

I hate waiting.

Just feeling sorry for myself.

Ride safe,

Chas

I'll heed your advice & wait till fall to get some custom paint so they can have 4+ months to get it done.

I really screwed up. I waited too long this winter to contact MCC and they had a month and a half waiting list. I should have done this a lot earlier but it was cold out & I figured it could wait til it got above freezing. Little did I know Iowa would go from sub freezing to good riding weather in 3 weeks. Then I delayed on the paint because the seats were gonna take 1.5 months, wow, I really messed up.

LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE!!!

Ride safe, (you lucky dogs)

Is that the paint that changes colors depending on how you look at it? If so, are you getting the heavy sparkle? Def. want to see the finished product!

I'll give full details & post pics when it's done. I have been to the paint shop twice today & he was about to start painting an hour ago when I was last there. I left so as not to distract him and cause a goof up. Feel kind of like an expectant father pacing in a waiting room back before they made us go in with our wives.

Ride safe,

Chas
