Starting, I keep flip flopping with the color scheme. Now I'm thinking red fairing, blue rims and black frame.

Found another Seca about 3 hours away from me and he's willing to take $450 for it, but I really don't have the space for another Seca. Even though the deal is GREAT all I want is the frame. I need feed back from you guys

Now he says $400

Decided to take a look at the engines that I covered up for the winter. I didn't do a good job of keeping these engines covered correctly. Today is a great day to paint these engines but I don't have the spray paint and certain areas of the engine hasn't been taped or covered for painting. The next good day I get I will attempt to paint one of them.

After paying closer attention to these fairings, I have decided to keep the color red since it's in good condition. A good cleaning and polishing should bring it back to life. I have a little damage to it so any advice on fixing it is helpful.

Guys, I have been slacking on this project, but the good news is that I have everything painted and ready to be put back together. I had these parts painted so I picked them up yesterday. My color scheme will be black frame, red fairings (I also have a belly pan) and blue rims. I have to paint the engine but that will will be done on a hot day. I totally forgot to repair one of the fairings that was damaged so that's something I will have to take care of later :cry: .

Wow, I almost forgot about this one. I powder coated the frame and damn near everything else on this bike. I will unwrap the parts and take some pics.
