my creative attempt - a Vintage look (a rewrite) Time to move on, .....so an edit is called for, OP First of all.....Yay, I've just signed up, paid my rego fee (via Paypal) and also looking forward to joining a fantastic riders community. Ok, my creative attempt at creating an old skool (sepia) look for my Honda cruiser to an old skool maybe say, possibly 1920's 40's look. I wated to create a look from the era of the Indian bikes but of course mine is still only a Honda. Stuff done to the bike. I wrapped the exhaust in exhaust wrap (I believe it called "lagged") because I love the look of wrapped exhaust rather than fully chromed exhaust. Although, I like 'bling' I'm not a big fan of masses of chrome. I like the chrome to help balance out the black & carbon fibre rather than overpower it. I've also used 3M-1080 Carbon Fibre vinyl wrap to do the tank and side pods because I like the look of Carbon Fibre but I'm trying to remain conscious of "less is more" and to not go overboard or too random/radical My goal is to turn my LAMs Honda VT400 into a bobber in the next year or so (Prob after-market Blue Collar Bobbers guards and a La Rosa seat but the rest will be my doing) but not a pure bobber although, it's still a working project. When I'm off my L's & P's I'll keep this bobber project for commuting and invest in a larger cruiser for touring.
