As the title suggests i got tired of looking at my nasty old rusty frame. I tore it down and had the frame powder coated, along with some engine covers and such. Hope you like it. :ride: :moon:

This is the frame before.

Thanks, it was definitely expensive. Well worth it to me. (just don't ask the misses). I'm getting ready to send out my ricochet skidplate, flatland radiator guards, and frame guards to powder coat.
