    Wicked cool paint job and deep as the day is long. First pic half sun, half shadow, next is full sun. The metalflake is very small, just how I wanted and it changes color depending on the light! Perfect!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks Toolman! Here's a few more pics. It's Aston Martin Magma Red. I haven't even waxed it yet. Just a quick wipedown with a clean rag.

    Thank you 71DartGuy! I was figuring that no one had ever painted this style bike in this color.

    Thanks Brother! I think it's still drying though as my Jeep is rank with paint smell, lol! Let Creed know that I plan on going over the paint with a microscope and bring it back for polishing if I see any flaws, then I'll wax...

    I was thinking the same as you too Mike. :)

    Tell Creed I say "Hey" and I plan on popping in his CD and mixing up a "Sea Monster" drink, lol!

    Thank you so much pastortom1! I'm certainly no paint pro so I left the body work to someone who knows the business. It was covered with small dents and one good sized one about the size of a half dollar with a crease in it. I expected them to bondo it all, but they pulled them out with a stud welder. It wasn't cheap, but I figure I'd get what I paid for. ;-) They even did the bottom of the tank as nice as the top!

    Parts for these old 900 or 1000 Kaws have now shot through the roof. Everything has been shipped to Austrailia, Japan, Germany and Austria as they are now considered "classics" overseas.

    I'll figure it out somehow. I'll make a fork or handlebar mount and take you all for a cruise in the mountains. :happy2:

    Nothing would make me happier than knowing you all were there for the ride..... without the weight, LOL!

    MeMike Knows his bizness dont wax for 30 days,no stickers for 30 days the paint and clear need to gass out or you will have troubles if you were to apply a large sticker over fresh paint and do it perfectly in a few days there would be bubbles all under that sticker so best to wait..... Good Call MeMike :)
