I like the seat - just not the carbon.
I already have the bike close to done, I have been working on it all summer and just got it back together to the point of starting it over the weekend.

I did the fiberglass and paint prep this spring when it was still pretty cold out.




I really wanted to paint it myself, but I don't have anywhere to do it. I used to paint for fun before I moved, but my new garage, while 4 times the size, just doesn't lend itself to painting. Our bedroom is over 1/2 the garage and the fumes would kill us (if my wife didn't).

Here are some bikes that I have done:

I am spending some time detailing all the parts before they go back on the bike.

I used a paint pen on this - not sure if it will hold up or not.




I had the frame blasted. then I spent a lot of time grinding the ugly welds down and using a little filler to smooth them out. This of course does not lend itself to powder coating, so I will have to live with the chips you get with a painted frame.



one of the first threads I ever came across about cafe bikes showed a way to trim the swingarm down for looks. So I did.

I decided to go with a drag bar over clip-ons or clubmans. I want to have rear sets where the pass pegs mount and I think that it is just too low with clip-ons.

I also like the look of handlebars. I swapped the clip-ons on my Ducati Monster to bars. I also want to keep the bars as clean as possible. That means no turn signals, no starter button (kick only) and aftermarket clutch and brake perches.






As far as paint ideas.

First I thought of using the stock red tank, but it wasn't in the best of shape. Mostly just little scratches, no real dents.

I bought another tank at Mid-Ohio vintage. I think that it is from a CB450. I paid $35 for it. When I got it on the bike, I didn't like the shape as much as the stock one. My wife likes it better.




So I bought a mint on on eBay with a cap for $80 shipped. Same red CB360 as what came with it. I also toyed with using the CL360 tank that I have from the parts bike.

As far as colors. I liked the idea of using the red stock paint since the look is vintage. I also have a thing for red & white bikes.

But I also kind of don't want a black frame. In fact, I want to use as little black as possible on the bike. Just for accent.

I really like red frames. Here is my old street bike, a Monster S4. I wanted a 900 but came across a deal that was too good to pass. It is my 2nd monster after a 750 that I bought at a salvage auction and fixed up (painted it red).



The plan when I got it was to paint the frame red and the tank black. I just never got around to it with the kids and all. I love how the bike road, but never warmed up to the looks. It did get a lot of complements.

So I sold the bike (got good money for it) and bought this:




I upgraded to Ohlins front and back, radial brembos, a single sided swingarm and 20-ish more HP plus the colors that I love for about $4k over the old monster. I also got a six year newer bike with 11,000 less miles and the previous owner spent a ton of cash extras that he included with the bike.

Plus my little girl can't have a better looking Monster then me.



All my riding gear is red, white and black. So that is the color scheme for the cafe racer. At first I was going to do the tank like the stock tank graphics, but with a white tank and red & black stripes. Then I saw a picture of a bike online and used is as inspiration for the tank and seat paint. White tank, black panels and some red pin stripes.

And a red frame to match the Monster.

Some nice paint jobs.  especially the RS125s and that 250.  I miss our RS125 - fantastic little bikes to ride.

The 360 is looking good too.

The guy used the normal buffer with the different paste sticks as well as a ball on a drill. The last step probably was a hand polish. The mothers was a empty can he gave me with the screws from the forks in it. I just used it to show how nice it looked.
