Meeeeee eittthhhherrr Paint!
I have never been one for purple, but it is such a pretty bike imo.... I get many compliments on it. Although I have to admitt... I'm thinking about repainting it after all the repairs are completed. The tank is scratched a little bit, and I've been thinking of trying to get ahold of some vintage brochures and see what the stock colors were back then.
Thanks for the compliments, I love her to death!! You'd never know she's almost 20 years old... Although in human years she acts like it! :wink: :grin:

Very nice... I had to look twice after you said it was 20 years old. It seems all bike manufacturers are going back to those classic lines...

That's okay... I didn't really want "queen", but princess sounded too witchy to me... So Chromegirl sounds fine. :)
I really do like that color, and have been thinking of restoring it with the same color. Don't know though.......
Thanks for the compliments Kenny.

I love the older lines of the classics. Being out of the bike world while I was busy with life, I had fallen into the reality that there was either HD's or sportbikes. I was pleasantly suprised to find that in my absence, metric builders were and had always been producing lines that harkened back to the "good ol days" It was a vulcan 750 in a Wilsons Leather store that called me back real hard to get a bike last year...love the look of that 750, it led me to the 800 and finally to the 1500.

As far as that purple paint, it really looks good in UW Husky purple...:)

Classic Ride Chromequeen! I would keep it purple, any other color would probably slow her down.

Awesome looking bike Chromequeen, the purple is a sweet colour, especially if you added just a lil bit of pearl to it....it would give her that lil glimmer in the sun.... :smile:

Nice set of wheels girl. I'm sure you'll find the right color when it's time (if there's even a need for change).
Until then, keep tinkering......after all that's half the fun isn't it?
