Jay, is that a metallic red? That would look great with the gold wheels. 


Ya I'm still not sure what to do about wheels yet, I think the current gold wheels would look good with the red, and actually I think the set of black wheels packed up in the garage would look pretty good too...

Maybe I'll go with a different color wheel though, just not sure yet...

Well, We will have hundreds of new pages/post to read over the winter   :))
Yes we will! :beerchug:

Good luck with the new set of skins Jay. She will be nothing short of fabulous I'm sure-
Back in 2006 the original ZX14 also came in "passion red"...

I'll try to keep my brutha's entertained through the crap weather months!  ;D :beerchug:

Back in the late 70's, When I was stationed in Cal, I had a new '78 750F Honda. I thought I was stylin til a buddy bought a new '79 750F, and had the head and valve cover anodized red. That was so cool. I guess what I'm getting at is you could have those black wheels anodized red, to match the bodywork.

Sometimes things just work out nicely, I'm feeling the good Lord is on my side with this paint project.  :)

The shop "Artistic Auto Body" that does all my paint work put a team together to compete in the dragon boat races down on the Willamette river this past weekend for an event called "Row for the Cure" to raise money for a really great cause!  :great:

One thing they did over the past couple months was sell raffel tickets to raise money, then yesterday at the "row" they pulled the winning ticket...

Yep, guess who's ticket they pulled!  ;D

My ticket was pulled and I won a $500 complete inside/outside auto detailing!  ;D

I spoke with them today and instead of getting one of my vehicles detailed inside & out I'm just gonna use the $500 credit towards the labor costs associated with this paint project!!  :great:

Woohoo, this project just got a little cheaper!!  ;D :great: :beerchug:

Woohoo!! Looks like this project will be getting started sooner than I expected!  >:D

VIP status from Corbin I guess bumps everyone else out and puts ya to the front of the line!  ;) :)

Ordered the smuggler trunk last week, it arrived today, typical great customer service and fast shipping from Corbin!  :great:

Jay,
Since the green is so 2013, as you so eloquently put it, why not just send all the green plastics to me after you get done with your color change? I am sure I can find a good use for them somewhere.

Ordering multiple times from Corbin and having them produce/deliver within a week means you have attained "Baller" status. The "VIP" level is only reserved for those that can get a C14 Smuggler out of 'em in a week or less for UNDER $799...

Dang it, why does the ultimate farkle continue to elude me(and cost so much)?... >:( :))
Bring on the Passion pics bro!  :o :beerchug: :o :beerchug: :o :beerchug: :o

Ya I agree with ya LT, the Corbin smuggler is definitely one of the most ultimate farkles for the C14!  :great:

The only thing better than having one IMO...................... IS HAVING TWO!  :))


Oh, and as fer price, VIP it is then, I get 10% off from Corbin, so my cost was only $719 and free shipping.  ;D

What's even more ironic is that in the beginning of this thread I mentioned that in my life I've only had one bike/car/truck that was red.... It was a 93 CBR 900RR and I had it painted exactly that, red body with white wheels, too funny!  :great:

Now yer gonna make me have to go try and dig for pics of it...  ;D :beerchug:

Thanks bro, I loved that bike, game changer IMO for sport bikes in the mid-90's!  :great:

That seems sooooo long ago, back then my girls were babies, now one in 2nd year of college and the other a senior in highschool, man time goes too fast...  :o

Yep, that was the house over by Rock Creek PCC. I traded what was left of my ZX7 race bike and all the parts to a guy up at EDR for it, it was pretty rough in the beginning but I fixed it up, had it for only a couple years but a really great bike!  :great:

Thanks! Love the old school late 80's to mid 90's bikes!  :great:
