Your bike has always looked ace John but that black respray makes her look proper outlaw.
Love your mirror, I would like some under slung ones to go with my ape hangers.

awesome, I love blacked out bits a lot more than masses of chrome. Did you use anything in particular to paint it, I'm thinking of doing a few parts of mine in black. I have seen another member here recommend PlastiDip, is that what you used?

Bunso , I have two "satin" black strategies , both are from a local paint manufacturer , Plascon. One is a product called 'Velvaglo' , which is a self-crosslinking polyurethane enamel , never intended for automotive application ! It's turpentine reduced , sprays beautifully as it's self-leveling and thixotropic! Once cured it's pretty tough stuff , only very strong solvent can dent it, it resists petrol beautifully. The other one , I used here, is a rattle-can , it's old-school 'Duco' , which is nitrocellulose based.

The trick to share is leave the rattle can in the sun to really warm it up , it helps the lay immensely.

The great thing about Duco is it is so easy to repair , just don't get brake fluid on it , it weathers well but it's not locked up like modern 2K product.

Yeah over here we have to plan painting anything like a military exercise then hope for the best Love the satin black though Gloss shows every imperfection satin is more forgiving then matt hides almost anything unless under direct sunlight which is a rare thing in the UK

I normally have to put my rattle cans on the radiator before spraying anything.
