A few changes

I can't leave anything stock, soooo....
Since the bike is black already, I think the rest will be. Only a few parts will stay chrome or aluminum. Going to pull the engine & paint it up like the ninja 500, black with polished fins. Of course, like most it's a work in progress. Here's a few pics

Looks great! I doing something similar with my exhaust. Mostly because the PO hacked off the mufflers and cross pipe, so I'm welding my new mufflers on and going to town with some black header paint.

Few problems on this green earth cannot be solved by the proper application of high explosives

jimmy-Thanks. It's Rustoleum appliance epoxy in a rattle can. Goes on nice & dries harder then regular paint. Matches the black on the bike better too. Got the wires run in the bars, the grips are on, & the brake line is back on. Waiting on the new turn signals to button up the front. I'll get some pics up when the lights are on.
