    Bought my Classic because it was the right bike, at the right time, with the right mileage at the right price but.........I always hated the way it looked. Never liked the two tone paintwork (sacrilege to some I know @barbagris ;)) and way too much chrome for my taste.

    Fast forward and some wrapping and powdercoating and I'm happy :) Just another black Rocket but I love it!

    Looks good, next project should be the valve cover and the rear shocks.
