    • Mirrors are in the Mail and 2 parts ( custom radiator cover and trailer hitch are getting Hydro Paint Dipped) will be ready next week. Photos to follow later.

    • Who's doing your hydro dipping?

    • It's about time! Should have painted it glacier blue

    • We are lucky, they do powder coat and paint Dipping 30 minutes away. This does hurt, I normally do my own painting. Look up Virginia Hydro Designs in Winchester Va. I'll post their work in a week or two. What I saw was incredible. Dipping is a 2 stage, first is the Base Color then is the Graphic Design... Summer will be my wheels.

    • Sounds like its ready for the 1/4 mile track. Nice apes, awesome sound!!!

    • We are Both ready to Ride Nick Cherevas !!!

    • I'm fascinated with hydro dipping. In fact, the wife and I just got back (last night) from a 3 day training class on it. Below are some of the projects we did (from start to finish) during training. It's so freaking cool.

    • Mix of Hydro and old school hand pin striping.

    • The Bike with the Victory bags. Loved them bags when I owned Victory'. They hard to mount?

    • Nick Cherevas complete custom brackets but overall not bad.

    • Patrick...plenty of room for passenger's legs?

    • Nick Cherevas yup

    • Thanx Patrick. My biggest wonder if if they would clear my pipe.

    • Nick Cherevas only worked because of my 2 in to 1. think they would hit doubles.

    • Patrick...I hear you there. It's hard to tell for me until I see my friend and pull off his Cross Country bag.

    • if you look at height of bracket to passenger floorboard, maybe?

    • Patrick....LOL....a definite big maybe. Thanks for giving me a little more hope

    • Shane Medlin it was incredible what I learned in 3 hours at their shop. WOW !!! 3 Days, that had to be nice... I saw books and books of Base Colors then so many Books of Graphics to lay on top, it was endless. They gave me a price of $300.00 for both wheel rims to match my grill and hitch. I thought that was a good price, 150 dollars per rim, being a 4 step process, doing one side at a time, prep, Base and Graphic on top. Then the other side.

    • Shane Medlin what's your thought on $150.00 for one rim ??? Guessing they will sand blast the rims first to prep first for it to hold properly ???

    • Yea, got to sand blast them to open the pores up. That's not a bad price for motorcycle wheels cause they have to dip each side separate, which means a lot of taping off and prep work.

    • Shane Medlin that's what I thought. Parts and labor. Has to be money to cover with base color and graphics, like you said doing one side, dry and cover with tape. Then the other side. Good excuse for new wheel bearings. Thanks !!!

    • It's going to look outstanding when your done. I've thought about dipping my wheels when I'm competent enough... the wife and I are starting a dipping business. Just "on the side" part time hobby kind of thing.. that's why we spent 3 days training.

    • Shane Medlin which will turn into powder coating, walk in ovens. So much business you will need to hire help, get a larger shed/shop. Larger water tubs for those 22-26 inch rims. Do you understand where I'm going at ??? I'm on your side... Just a little side work you say. Who are you Kidding ???

    • I'm not interested in powder coating. I already have an 8ft dipping tank. That's big enough to do a house door.. a door!

      and yea, my wife would love to quit her job and be able to do this full time.

      My goal, I wanna buy 10 year old bikes that are in great running shape and totally stock. Then flip them. I like doing stuff like that. Motorcycles, jet ski's, 4 wheeler, etc.

    • Shane Medlin there's a lot of good people on this site. The 2K has lots of parts that Dipping is perfect for. We all might not be rich but even one part at a time is a start. Make sure you Post your projects as you Finish them for us to see and learn. Understand what I'm saying ??? Keep us updated... It upsets me when I hear someone is taking can paint to their 2K...
