thinking of murdering out my bike.
« on: Jan 17, 2014, 21:38:20 »
So I've been searching around and seeing a lot of different bike and was thinking about changing mg bike up for the upcoming summer now my bike looks likes this now I was thinking of murdering it out a bit and painting alot of it either flat or gloss black what do you guys think paint it black and leave the tank red like painting the forks and headlight and what not maybe the motor. Or maybe just the forks and change up the front fender and mirrors and look into stretching the swing arm to make it a little longer. Looking to get some feedback on the idea

I live out of the way down in the swamp so forgive me as I am "out of the loop". Is murdering a new style? Is it taking over the cafe scene?

I would just take that sack off of the front.

Maybe move the bag to the back I need to have place to keep my registration and insurance. And as far as murdering out pretty much means to flat black everything not sure what I wanna do with it yet. As far as cafe no thanks I'd rather cut my bike into little pieces before even considering one of those ugly things. May just touch up a few things paint the forks and change the mirrors and finally put some more money in it. And maybe cut down those bug eye marker lights lol move em in a bit or change em out when I built the bike I didnt have a lot of money now I work at a speed shop so have plenty of money to put into it.

If that's the case I'd go MANSON on it and murder that bad boy. At least to match those hangers. As far as the papers go once that bike is murdered what law enforcement agent is gonna have the balls to pull you over?

That bike's not really my style, but all black bikes look terrible. It's about the laziest thing you can do with a bike's style, and for it to look even vaguely good, you've got to do it right. No one ever does it right.

Wasn't all flat black a nineties thing?  Is it coming back again?  What happened to the rear end of that bike?  It looks like it collapsed in those small pics, but I'm guessing it may have been lowered or hardtailed.

we have an FZR400 in the shop with semi gloss tank, seat cowl and fairing with a yellow stripe and white wheels and it looks fine, but all black is just a rat bike look that was popular a while ago as a grunge look.  Not my favorite look.
