    That's awesome!!!

    Is this you're own design that was done with the hydrographics process?  Can I ask what it costs?

    It is called 'Insanity'.   Easy to order, but I would recommend having an experienced person do the dipping.   I paid 1K  for all 5 pieces to be dipped at ATF Hydrographics, and he did everything from sandblasting to clearcoat.

      There's a Raider owner out of Charlotte NC that has been coming to the SERR the last few years that does Hydrographics

      That's far cheaper than my paint job cost.

      I've only ever seen helmets done with this technology.  Very cool process and bad azzz if done right around sharp bends.   Helps if you know what you're doing!    You can make anything look super custom.     :thumbs:


      There's no substitute for cubic inches and a good engine management system!   Hmmm, well maybe a blower, NOS or turbo....

      The hardest part was changing the turn signal wiring to fit the HD controls.  Took me a week.  The 11" risers were a bit much, but I wanted it to look like the forks went all the way up.
