No, its my dads bike. So you think black, I painted it gray myself already it came out pretty good it looks factory. What Kind of black matte or gloss.

By the way nice blue gauges. Are they any harder to read in the day? Where did you get them? Thanks

Nice job on the grey, looks pretty damn good. How did you do that? Spray can or real paint job? I did a very quick photochop to give you some sort of an idea. It doesn't tie in with the decals as well as I thought it would have so you might be better off sticking with the grey. The blue 04's look awesome with black frames though! If you do get it probably go semi gloss.

I did the gauges myself. I really should write up a how to. You just have to pull the cluster apart and replace the LED's. Quite straight forward and the result looks superb in real life. It's not any harder to read than the stock orange but A LOT brighter at night time. All you need is the correct replacement LED's which I got for free from a local distributor (He gave them to me passing them off as 'samples' because I only wanted 6 or so)

Oh and PS, get a new set of tyres. Damn!

whoa! looks like my bike.

the grey frame looks sweet and is pretty unique...i probably wouldnt go to the trouble of painting it black since it's already grey.

looks great.

Wow, that bike is very clean, you must of put a lot of time into it to get it to look that good. Everything matches, It looks very nice, I would leave it. But if you are going to go black, powdercoat it instead of paint, It lasts a hell of a lot longer.
