Default Pics of my bike.

I don't post here much but thought I'd post some pics of my 04 rubbermount. It's in winter hibernation now but come spring it'll have rattle can flat black 10"x 23.5" twisted z-bars on it. I'm thinking of painting the stock tank black to match up with my rear fender or getting a 3.3 flat black tank on there. It will always change. Anyways.

Why flat black? Why not something different? I'm just curious, because everyone else and their brother wants to do flat black. Do flat beige or the red/brown primer color.

Call it "gloss challenged black" so the flat black haters have something new to worry about.

Needs a Peanut tank, ditch the front belt guard, chop the cam cover, and please don't wash the whitewall. Otherwise, rad,,,
I love it when rubbers get used rather than looked at.

Yeah, that's it- I'm a flat black hater. Do whatever you want, it's your bike. If you want to make it look like every 3rd bike on here, be my guest.
