My $42.00 mod

Just have to say that I had a chance to have someone that owes me a favor paint my bike. (Plastics are shot) So i wen't to him, and discussed different paint jobs. I thought wow, a thousand dollar paint job, on a KLR Woo-hoo! Then I began to realize, that if I did this I would be shunned by all of you by breaking the cardinal rule. Were cheap.

So here is the before:




And tomorrow I will post the after... (Sorry you have to wait)

A $1000 paint job will double it's value.

Looks great! I love flat black. Never ceases to amaze me how a paint job seems to give the KLR's a whole new personality. Ride on!

It's actually bedliner, so it has texture too. I'll have to wait until I get a little sun on it and take a couple more pictures.
