This thing turned out awesome. I love how you changed directions midway through the build, rather than just finishing what you started. Major Kudos for sticking true to you vision and it obviously paid off. Great looking build! I enjoyed binging through the thread!

Question, what did you use to paint the wheels, swingarm, and frame?

Thanks! I used Rustoleum Appliance epoxy for the wheels, VHT Gloss chassis enamel for frame & swingarm. VHT Gloss Engine enamel for the engine.

Thanks man! The headlight is a 7" Daymaker. The tank is a remake of the old Yamaha RD350. You can find both on eBay.

Well its unique for sure.  I havent seen another bike quite like it, which I like.  There are far too many cookie cutter style bikes out there.  I wanna see something hand made, and this fit the bill.  Well done I say.  Good job.  8)

Question.  The original headlight plan used those halo fog lights.  Did those fog lights have a hard light break like projectors do or did they not have a break and light shown everywhere like a standard halogen?  Am I making sense? lol
