    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg After covering my tank panels I want to get rid of all the painted silver on my icon. I found a high temp paint called "cast iron." So far I sprayed out the two exhaust covers, the ring around the headlight, and the ring on the guage. The gray matches the frame color and the engine quite well. I do want to change the bars to something black. Not sure. What do you think?

    Full Throttle bars is a good option.

    I like the look. Are they low enough? I guess I can go sit on one at a dealer and see what they feel like. My last bike 20 years ago had clip ons so I'm used to them lower. Did you like the grey out on the silver.

    IMG_1010.JPG I've painted a lot of the silver on my bike black, by far the most satisfying thing to paint black is the sliver lines under the seat. Looks soooooo much better.

    I actually like the silver bits as to me a black bike is boring. Each to their own :)

    Hello
    I find your color really nice and it's an easier way to remove this silver than what I have chosen (polish it).
    But I prefer my solution ;-)

    Looks great, well done! I really like that color of black, can you share the specifics on the paint?

    High temp rattle can paint. The color is called "cast iron". I put like 6 coats on a warm day in the shade. About every ten minutes and it's holding up really well. Cheap and easy.
