Goodbye Orange

So I'm jumping in and will be modding my scoot this winter and thought I'd throw up a build thread for giggles. Here is a list of what I will be doing -

Top Shop 4.5" new style stretched bags
Top shop Misfit rear fender
Hog Pro 21" wrapper front fender
HD chrome front end kit
21" 52 fat spoke front and 16" 52 fat spoke rear. Both in chrome
FBI low profile dash
To eliminate the license plate hoop and the tour pack mounts for the 07 I will be using the Bad Dad license plate relocation kit and the FBI tour pack mount for a 2007. This will clean up the ass end and still allow me to use the detach tour pack.

Color scheme will be House of Kolors galaxy gray and House of Kolors candy cherry.

Here is the color choice




Here is what I'm starting with

I'm not artistic nor am I good with explaining things My painter has come up with a basic concept/drawing and I trust it will look sweet. You will just have to wait until it's close to done or until the final reveal to find out.
All I will say is no more upside down Nike swoosh.

Yeah the upside down Nike gets to you after a while.

The color scheme is great, the contrast should be eye catching for sure.

Not sure I would go with a fancy wheel on the rear again. Nobody really sees it except for me when I have the bike on the lift or the bags off cleaning them. In hindsight I should have put that money into better front suspension.

But I also know that having the rear wheel matching gives me a sense of satisfaction that it is "matched".

Keep the pictures coming as the changes happen.
