    Paint is a Mazda color spirited green .
    I had the rattle cans made up at a auto parts supplier they where a little pricey but worth it
    as they spray on great .
    It is as close as I could get to the old CCM Mustang color .
    The CCM muscle bikes had a silver undercoat and I think a candy color over top .
    I redid a CCM charger once and even though it was a black bike it had the silver under coat as well .

    Bike is finished just gotta shoot some good photos
    Here is the only gizmo on the bike .
    I needed to put on a reflector and have a set of these old hologram muscle bike ones .
    Very hard to photo these but gave it a shot .
    Its a bat and depending on the angle you are looking at the wings flap and looks like its flying at you . IMG_8082.JPG IMG_8081.JPG

    Tried a fountain shot still couldn't get the color right .
    As I was wheeling up to the fountain a beautiful tall brunette supermodel had just finished shooting some photos.
    She was wearing a sequinned Green dress .
    I tried boys and girls but she didn't want to be in the shot .
    I saw her later and thanked her for not being in the shot as no one would have noticed the bike .

    I think that's a great fountain shot. Just needed a little cropping. That paint is popping on the light!
