I lay down too, but then again I lay down on my tank bag... If I'm without my tank bag I'm too tall to lay on the tank and be comfortable enough to focus on riding. On the tank bag I'm at the perfect position... Actually I feel like I'm riding naked without my tank bag....

Agreed, every time I look at the bike it feels good knowing I did it, seemed almost insurmountable when I started and it's far from perfect but it's all me and that's I can be proud of.

Looks like you have done a good job with yours as well, good luck with the rest!

SO I wanted to paint mine, I have a 15 gallon tank that has 4.8 CFM
3.7 scfm @40 psi
2.6 scfm @90 psi
Think that is enough. I have been looking at paint, thought I would go with a dulicolor premix then follow it up with a clear coat. I was going to have a sign shop make the lettering. Maybe you could talk about what and how you did it.
Thanks, and I too want that feeling of I did it...

Well done! The bike looks incredible! I like the silver frame and white plastics, very distinctive.

Thanks drive hard

I use napa paint on mine works good and they will answer your questions

The smaller compressor will need to recover more but seeing the panels are small you should be okay if not you can rent a compressor from a tool rental place still cheaper than paying anyone else

You can remark pretty quickly I did my whole paint job in 23 hours straight I wasn't working the whole time but I wasn't sleeping either
