      Right on... anyone have something else?

      I'm thinking of leaving the side and valve covers polished... and painting the cylinders/heads black. Probably polishing the cooling fins, or painting them red. The Hawk lettering on the tank is red... may look good.

              Honestly... I expect that regular tremclad/rustoleum will work fine. I doubt that it will see the amount of heat required for a BBQ/high heat paint. I'll end up scuffing up the existing finish, and getting rid of any flakey bits.
              I may be wrong!

              There is a powder coater around here... That would be nice, but I just don't have the time to get that done. If I was doing this in the winter, that'd be one thing... but our summer is short enough around here, and I've got vacation coming up in a couple weeks. Got to have the bike back on the road by then!

                I did mine like that three winters ago. I used metallic charcoal grey engine paint, and then filed through to expose the fins. Holding up great, so far. If it is a dark color like black, it will need the odd touch-up every once in awhile due to debris being kicked up from the front wheel.

                  Right on... looks good. I had thought of an engine paint... depends on what I've already got on the shelf. Anyone else have about 30 cans of paint of various colors, and degrees of fullness?

                    Im just about to spray my crankcases matt black and have the heads and barrels powdercoated satin black. clutch and generator covers to be polished along with the rocker covers! I like the fin edges being polsihed, that looks really tidy!


                    cheers

                              Right on.. I did actually paint the heads and cylinders black. I'll have to get a new pic up. Looks pretty good.
