    I did the paint/powder coat. The dark green is Mirror Green powder from Eastwood and the light green is Gloss Fern Rustoleum rattle can from lowes. I was going to go with Orange pinstripes but now after getting my "The World" decal put on I decided to go with red.

    Thanks I have a couple more from down by the river that I'll upload later. Plus I'm sure after the parade tomorrow I'll get to take some more with the rest of my decals on and the ugly head/tail lights off of it

    I saw the first post of this build and somehow missed the rest of it? That is one sweet looking bike and a nice restoration.

    How did you mask off the darts when you painted them? I saw you got some stencils. How did you use those ? I've been trying to get someone to do a show and tell on painting darts but so far no.

    The grey is actually the chrome powder coat before baking.

    Thank you. The stencils i ordered are actually for a phantom but reversed for powder coated frames. Usually your suppose to paint the front color then mask off and paint the back. I'm getting ready to restore another straight bar for my dad and this time I'll post pics of putting the pencils on.

    I would have never fathomed to go green with the red tires, but egads! she looks nice.

    Thank you, I had considered going with bright red tires instead of the bricks but seen a bike this combination and loved it.
