I like it. This is mine, crappy photo and the bike is dirty from all the rain we are getting atm.




And also painted the rear peg mounts.

I ditched the OEM guard and went with a hugger. I do like the idea of painting the pillion peg struts black. Might be my next little project.

And those damn silver radiator ends on the black motor are starting to give me the irrats - I reckon they're going to be the first under the spray can. But I was hoping to ride it on the weekend, not work on it! Razz

Was wondering what paints were used?
 I have a spare set of radiator ends and want to do the same but can't get the info on paints to use.   
Any issues of flaking?

Thanks 2Wheels, but as a new father and a helmet in my sights I am afraid I can't quite afford items of that calibre.  
 Just need to find the best paint/paints to use that won't wear and or chip away in coming months.

Thanks , seems simple enough.  Chipping was the only real concern.  Gus's one in picture is exactly what i am after.  Rattle can by the looks.
