Levi is the only guy I know who'd paint over a royal flush!

Thanks gents. Turned out good enough for a dirtbike wheel that'll hopefully be covered in mud most of the time. If it were a show bike, you'd probably want to break it down and do it "right". Also not sure how well the paint will stick to the anodized wheel, but I guess we'll find out

The enviro nazis will soon be at your door! Should stick OK if you cleared over. Duplicolor wheel paint stayed on my Comstars through a tire change.

It's ok, I threw the paint cover straws in a creek that leads to a lake, not the ocean, so it'll be fine lol I didn't clear it... maybe I should. It'll cost me another $2.15 in straws and cards though...

Straw boss? Bling donkey. I know the swamp and those wheels are too lit for the swamp.

He needs to make up for all the cool factor he lost when he decided NOT to make it a two stroke... sad, bigly

Edit: i mean just think how much cooler this thing would be with the smell of castor oil!

It might be some kind of epidemic that's infecting DTT:  A chromed out "rat bike" CB400F, a blinged out swamp donkey.  Next thing you know somebody will be building a hard tail dual sport, or a '38 Indian Four Cafe bike w/ USD forks.  Strange days on DTT indeed.

That’s just because some days it’s way more fun to ride something through the mud then it is to polish something over and over again

Dang it dude!  No shit, THIS VERY THING was my next project, built around my spare 400-four engine and frame. 

Cause cafe bikes are yesterdays news.  ;)
