Jay,
The bike looks fantastic. I am still unsure about the green wheels though. I'll reserve judgement til you get them on though. Kudos on the red!
Matt
+1, except I will pass judgement anytime on "censored".   :)

Thanks guys!  :beerchug:

Wonder what it would look like fuscia? 











"I can resist anything except temptation."  ~Oscar Wilde

“Whenever the devil harasses you, seek the company of men or drink more, or joke and talk nonsense, or do some other merry thing. Sometimes we must drink more, sport, recreate ourselves, [repaint our motorcycles] and even sin a little to spite the devil, so that we leave him no place for troubling our consciences with trifles. We are conquered if we try too conscientiously not to sin at all. So when the devil says to you: do not drink, answer him: I will drink, and right freely, just because you tell me not to.”  ~Martin Luther

Na SR, the green wheels are for the black bodywork, I might try the black wheels with the red bodywork though in January when the PR4's are released just to see how they look...  ???

Well I really wanted the 1400GTR badges on the tail sides to look good, but even after painting the centers of the numbers and letters with red they still just didn't look great IMO...  :(

So I ended up getting another set of Concours14 badges and had them painted in the gloss black, just got back from the painter, they heat gunned off the 1400GTR ones and applied the Concours14 ones.  ;D

I'm happy with these, they look much better IMO.  :great:

Oh oh Jay....

I was telling my wife about your bike the whole time you were painting it green.  Now my wife is a lover of all things RED.  Red Corvettes, Porsches, her old Celica, her old 442, etc. etc.  If it's red she will say it's great.

When I showed her the pics of your red bike yesterday she said, "Ahhhh... it's OK."  I about fell out.  She liked the green better.  I know I liked the green better, but never expected her to think that... no way.  Anyway, she was pleased to hear that you had multi plastics so you can convert it any time you like.  I still can't believe lil "Miss I Love Red" picked your green over the red.  FREAKYYYYYYYY!





Still absolutely gorgeous.  Oh, we both also have decided you're too young to have a daughter that old. So consider yourself younger than you are... back to root beer for you.  :beerchug:

EDIT TO ADD: Oops, her 442 was blue & silver, her Calais SST and her Solara were red. I have been corrected once again.
