You are obviously a lucky man with bikes and the ladies.  Love the bike and those grips are going to be special - Bowie knife grips - I'd love a set in brass and Amber.  I'd pick tank design number three, the others look good on paper, but I think three will look stylish and unfussy on the bike.  Keep up the good work.

Rad grip idea man. How do you plan to cap off the ends?

 I'm partial to tank 1 & 4. Something really cool about the simpleness of 1 though.

going to be a killer bike.  i think option three of the tank layouts is the most awesome, personally.  #1 has been played out but number three just looks classy.  grips are badass already, can't wait to see the final product.  way to go bud.
so a dolphin is driving and his car breaks down...he takes it to a mechanic...the mechanic says its going to be a few hours if he wants to wander around the town...upon his return, the mechanic says "looks like you blew a seal" to which the dolphin replies: "no sir, it was a walrus"

I'm a man of few words, so for that I apologize.

With photos like you have, you are speaking volumes enough. BTW, I'm for paint option 4.

So, tonight I gave a go at painting my headers. Since my headers were bare metal, I wanted to do something to them that would keep it low maintenance and looking slick. Pipe wrap isn't for me and high temp paints don't come in a vast array of colours. So here's what I decided to do. I went out and bought some VHT header paint in white. The stuff only comes in aerosol (at least in Canada) so I decided to do a little customization. Release the gas from the can, cut it open, and poured it into a mixing bottle. I live right next to a sherwin williams so I asked them for some tints which they kindly gave me for free. I wanted to adjust the colour of the paint to a cream colour to match my tank, but needed something that wouldn't alter the high temp compound. I wasn't entirely sure how the tints would hold up to the heat.

Here's my tints.


Headers ready for paint.


Went to 250, colour is looking great. Then to 400, still looking fantastic.









Cranked it up to the final 600, and something went terribly wrong.























Well folks, back to the drawing board.

That is bloody brilliant.   You should run them - I'd love to see them in person one Thursday night.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
