Keeping the bike looking good?

What do you guys use (if anything) to keep the paint from rubbing off the side of these frames? And what about the fork legs, is there anything to cover those up with out covering up the nice gold color?

Grip tape for a skateboard.

Gold colored socks? :cry:

Ive seen clear guards that stick to your frame. You can bearly see them so its kind of like lamonating your frame. Just cant remember where i saw them. You could also use that clear guard for your forks too. :cry: Ill let you know if i find them.

I have tried almost everything - nothing works very well except yamaha blue spray paint .......plastics and frame paint will always be a Yamaha everything - 2005 nemisis.......get used to it - :cry:

Check out the link above to a pic of my bike. Since day 1 I've used some aluminum tape on the frame to protect it from my boots, in addition to Works Connection frame guards. Under the tape, I have brand new looking paint. I think it looks kinda cool too. I have to replace it about twice a season which takes about 10 minutes to remove the old and replace with new. I just picked up an 04 and will do the same before riding it.

Man, that is one great looking bike. It doesn't matter how old it is, it looks great.

I take good care of my '04 too, and I can only hope it looks that good in 4 years.

:cry:

I used grip/skateboard tape on my 426. Looks good for about 3 rides.

here is a pic of my 2000. Plastic guards always worked best for me. I do like the Alum tape idea, though.
