Yes colors..... sort of. More like a general pallette, I still have to see them in person. Hopefully, I'll be able to make a run by the painters to see what we can come up with. He and I both are pretty busy this time of year with fam stuff.
Remember this? Well, this cat looks very much like one of mine, the asshole of the bunch. Love the black and golds. The painter does a lot of flames and a lot of lace too. I was trying to steer clear of flames but, who knows.

Thanks 'trash!

I have a bit of time off next week so I'm going to try running the tank by the painter.
Still changing things that I'm not fuzzy about. Changed bars again... went with plain ol' drag bars this time. The ergos are better, and they seem to add a bit of attitude. I've never been a huge fan of drag bars but, like the sporty tank, they fit this build pretty well. I bought a pair of $20 for mock up, now I have to find some with better chrome (or stainless) that have the same dimensions.
Hopefully, the next time I post on here it will be pics of a freshly painted bottom feeder and not so mundane shit.

I gave in. I'm letting the pianter have his way with it. I'll have a little input of course, but it'in his hands. He came up with something that I think will not kill the rest of the bike.

I like that Steve is keeping me in the loop, I think he could tell that I'm still apprehensive about the whole idea of painting it anything other than a solid color. In the end, I basically told him the stuff I wasn't fond of and let him go at it. I still feel a bit nervous about the whole thing tho... I think I just got used to seeing it bare metal (and rust) and it sort of became part of the bike.
