New respray pics

Post  alleycat on Thu Mar 14 2013, 18:45

Well after a solid two weeks of thundercat ownership and having only managed a few decent runs and many other shorter (soggier) ones I thought id capitalize on the mrs being away for a week and respray the bike as I wasnt too keen on the red (my firms tops are red so the colour just reminds me of work lol)

So here is a pic of it when I first got it:



And how it looks now after fitting a pyramid single seat cowl, mra double bubble, tank cover, removing the grab handles and smoothing off the rear fairings and respraying/re decal-ing (if thats even a word)









Stripped and prepped the fairings on the saturday, sprayed them on the sunday then spent the next week after work in the evenings finishing and reassembling the bike and was done for her return on friday "no love it looked like that when I bought it" green smile

Stunning bike that colours are fantastic in fact probably
One of the nicest colour schemes I've seen, simples yet effective, well done, would live to see her out on a ride out some time

Looks simple and effective, good work

Just hope you have not lost some top end as the black, red and black ones are the quickest you know! Laughing

Woah, there's another brilliant re-modelling of a 'Cat! Cool

Well done that man.

I think we're going to have to have a parade of 'new' 'Cat's this year. A bit of a beauty contest. Ross - you're barred! Very Happy

Nicely done! left thumb up

If I may though, I hope you don't regret removing the rear grab handles - they are a very handy way of holding, manoeuvring and catching a toppling bike.....

thanks for all the kind comments chaps Very Happy ... and i'm hoping I wont live to regret my grab handle removal as I have already almost proved that im more then capable of dropping the bike even when they were still attached lol

just liked the look of the single seat cowl and nobody Ive asked are prepared to get on the back of it anyways Don\'t Know

Ditto prefer the look of the back end without the grab handles, and if you drop it it's easier to lift it just using the bars
