That last post made me VERY happy.
I can make a bike look damn good with next to no cash, so It's just a question of it being a target for thieves or not. The previous, previous owners(s)? had painted it olive green, since the plastic was faded. I think I'll go with truck bed liner, BBQ paint (for the hot stuff), and gloss white (or lime green) for all the bars and skid plates.
I hope it gets smashed to bits and comes back looking like it went through hell. Actually I hope it doesn't come back at all, and I'm still with it.
