    Default New helmet paint

    Decided it was time to sand the old skull skid plate and lay out a new design. Had a buddy make me decals of the big four in Japanese font for a little accent. Ready for clear.

    SUZUKI ON THE LEFT. HONDA ON THE RIGHT.






    KAWASAKI ON LEFT. YAMAHA ON THE RIGHT

    MY BIKES..1977 GS 750 B, 1978 GS 1000 C (X2)
    1978 GS 1000 E, 1979 GS 1000 S, 1973 Yamaha TX 750, 1977 Kawasaki KZ 650B1, 1975 Honda GL1000 Goldwing, 1983 CB 650SC Nighthawk, 1972 Honda CB 350K4, 74 Honda CB550

    NEVER SNEAK UP ON A SLEEPING DOG..NOT EVEN YOUR OWN.


    I would rather trust my bike to a "QUACK" that KNOWS how to fix it rather than a book worm that THINKS HE KNOWS how to fix it.

    I couldn’t wear it, but I certainly appreciate the calligraphy skills. Cool.

    Looks good, Chuck..but I have to admit I always thought of you as someone who wouldn't wear anything less then a full-face helmet.
