    The whole point of the build off should be light hearted and fun, so you are on the right track already. Love that amf tank

    Skyrider is a pretty cool name from the factory, or they made a Texas Ranger also. A pretty cool bike, it will be fun to see where you take it.

    The rake of the fork and the tank is what drew me to the bike
    Ideas are:
    8bo11: black and rootbeer metallic to match my sportster I'm redoing
    Meririder: red white and blue
    Or Just
    Skyrider in black and raspberry

    'Light hearted and fun' would be a cool name...

    Decided to go with DRAGN for this project name. No fun cool stuff to show yet, just started stripping the fenders today.

    I took the left side of the tank out to our local vinyl shop to have repop decals made for the tank but without the name on them. can't wait to get the tank and decals back.

    Got a call after I was 1100 miles from home that my graphics was ready. Will be picking them up when we get back.

    Me too. Some people bad mouth the company, but the U.S. motorcycle industry may have disappeared completely without them.

    Looks like you got a better deal than me. I paid $20 for mine AND supplied the print ready artwork to boot. I need better friends!
