I bought this bike for $3700, in perfect mechanical condition and 8500 miles but VERY bad appearance wise. Someone attacked it with flat black spray paint, and did some horrid plastic welding. So I decided to try my first real paint job. I repaired most of the plastics, and replaced a couple pieces. Then painted it House of Kolors Kandy tangerine, and gloss back.

It looks good, i just bought a bike that looked almost exactly like that about 4 months ago. It looks a little better now but i think i'm just gonna buy some hong kong plastics this winter instead of trying to piece together some OEM parts. :welcome: to the site!

That poor bike... Is it an '04 or '05? I like the new paint job, it looks great. The previous "paint job" however, makes me wonder if it's legit...

Did the last "owner" really paint over it all the way it is, engine, suspension and all? It looks like the brakes and forks are painted too. That can't be too good for it. :dontknow:
