Well guys, my baby is finally done with the exception of 1 red chain.

Other than that, she is a beauty!!!

I got the Powdercoating of the rims done black, and the levers, bar ends, rear sets, and the passenger sets powdercoated metallic candy apple red. I got them back 2 days ago and have been taking pics but I have not had internet! :(

So this morning I installed the Tidy Tail, and red rim stripes and red CBR decals and debadged the rest of the bike.....needless to say she is looks CHERRY!

Here are the first set of pics...I hope you enjoy it as much as I do......

The original bike VS. my vision!

Okay, well the Powdercoating for the rims was 95 each. All the silver pieces levers, sets, bar wieghts etc was 160.

The windshield is HONDA OEM, go to the TYGA website to purchase, I dont know the price.

Lastly guys I found out that those silly silver HONDA wings are UNDER the clear coat on the tank....GRRRRR

So I am having decals made in red to cover them, since I cannot remove them....

Hey W0RM, what do you think about the CBR badge??? I think it looks way nicer than those OEM ones from the factory.

I was at the Dealership today and the guys from the dealership had just got in a new black CBR250R and so I decided to park next to it and snap a few photos, to remember just what my bike USE to look like ;)





I might not have the only one in Hawaii anymore, but none of em will ever even be mistaken for it! =D

Looks great man!!!
Did you put back the original wheel bearings or did you replace them with new ones when you had your wheels powder coated? I'm thinking of powder coating my wheels black too while my bike is in for its first service. So I was wondering if its easy putting the wheel bearings back on without damaging it?
