So nice of you to use the same graphics that I have. That way, when I come down and ride it, I'll think, I'm on my bike :)

You should have your stickers tommorrow or the next day.

Just a general question here...

...but when you guys post all of these pictures of your perfect looking bikes...do you actually RIDE them at all? Maybe you just dont crash at all...which I can understand...but if I were to post a picture of MY BIKE, I'd probably be thrown off of the site! LOL

Dont get me wrong...she's being cared for very much so...she just doesnt have those pretty graphics and a lack of creases/scratches in her plastic like yours...

Nice lookin' bike!

Bill, Bill, Bill,..... does your buddy know how lucky he is???

Not only does he have a bike to ride (most underprivlidged kids would love to just be able to ride) but he has a KILLER ride!!!

I dont know what else to say but.... Posted ImageIM NOT WORTHY!!!

Appearently you didn't see the initial photos of this bike when I got it a few weeks ago. The plastic and the frame were thrashed, The engine was stained very badly by the GA clay that the previous owner failed to keep cleaned. All the bearings were trashed, the handlebars were bent and wasted, and there was No Tank graphics. Not to mention the abortion that was the carb and jetting. The only thing that was sound on the whole bike was the motor (Thanks to MXTuner for the full checkout). 1 32oz bottle of Plastic renew, a bunch of parts and about 12 hours of hard labor and it looks new again....

The only thing better than having a buddy bike is having a buddy with a buddy bike.
Did that come out right???
Nice scoot.

You've got way too much time on your hands...

Anyway...The only change to the directions in the article you posted.

I recommend starting with a 400 grit wet sand paper and finishing up with a 1000 grit paper. It looks like new vs having some swirl marks remaining from the 400.
