    I think I have figured out the paint theme i will go with...

    Black and blue prob metal flake blue of some sort...
    The silver on the oil tank will be black, and all the lines will be straight, this painters tape is just so i can change it until i like it

    none, but I once cleaned up the intake manifold to get a check engine light to go out. Once owned an s2000, but Honda pissed me off.
    I plan to do exactly this. how I go about it exactly, I don't know just yet... not sure if I'm just going to go with a donor bike and chop the hell out of it, or just go straight for a frame and buy a cb750 motor for it... I want a fat rear tire with custom rims, a wee bit of rake - no more than 45 degrees and some ape hangers...
