    Re: can't decide on a name yet

    I'm such a slacker on this one!! I brought the bike home and have been debating on a color. I'm off this weekend so I should be able to get some BEFORE pics of everything and start disassembly!

    Nope......nothing that looks like a Bee. In fact, I'm going to go a little out of my "comfort zone" on this build and try not to paint it black.... :wink:

    And Luke.....you're not "up against" anything with me involved.... I have no talent, skills, patience or any combination of the 3.

    Re: The BIG STING--Starter pic added

    Here's my before pic. It's the remnants of the "REAPER" build. After my last long ride w/ it, I decided to pillage some parts off it for other builds. That, and most of the skull lights got damaged.... :shock: So I'm recycling (rimshot) this one for another build!

    I can't help but repeat that in my best Colonel Sherman T. Potter voice!! :lol:



    A little mock up today to see if I can get a feel for it. I see a couple things that will need replaced but I think I may have a "look" to run with.....

    Re: The BIG STING--1st mock up pics

    Found a bar for sissys and a well used nanner to add to the mock up. The seat is 18" long. I'd like to find one about 20"-21" and some taller apes that will suit the feel once the color is laid on.

    I'm beginning to like what I'm seeing in my head when I look at this..... 8) 8)

    Re: The BIG STING--1st mock up pics

    Thanks Luke! I'm going to try out another sissy bar to see which I like better before I make a final decision. I'm trying to find a longer nanner that's not black or white. Not seeing many options on that..... :cry:

    Re: The BIG STING--1st mock up pics

    Anybody know where I can get a vinyl glitter/sparkle/metallic banana seat that's longer than 18"? All I'm seeing is plain black, white, a combo of the two or velour.

    I think that's what's goona hafta take place. I've been in contact with another member about some vinyl so that may happen. But it all boils back down to no skills & no talent.... :roll:
