My Motorcycle - Repainted!

Post by Drunken Teddy » Mon Jun 04, 2012 2:01 pm

Hey All,

I disappeared for a bit there, mostly work related but also I was repainting my motorbike. I figured I'd show off how my spray paint job turned out. The bike is a 1992 Suzuki GSXR750, I spent around $50 on everything I needed to paint it. The original paint job was hideous and very 90s, the black looks much better.

Did you dis-assemble it or did you paint it with everything on? Looks nice. You should show off other angles of it. And is it stock besides the paint job?

Aftermarket exhaust, coils, air filter, and a few other little pieces. I took the fairings off to paint them. :)

Oh this is the bike, that sucks it was stolen. Did you ever get it back or hear anything else.

Haven't heard anything, so I don't think it's coming back, but I bought a new one yesterday. It's an 05 Yamaha R6.
