Or should we polish it out?

I don't mean to make you bust out the elbow grease but polished just sounds so cool

BLACK POWDER
If a pair of 2" brass balls isn't working, I doubt that the 3" model will make much difference.

i picked polished because i think if it was black thatd be too much black in the bike and i think polished would look nice and possibly tie in with the pipe

I just noticed something, why are we trying to replicate maico colors?


I voted polished, but powder black wouldn't be a bad choice.

Oh I did
and did
and did

I am currently in the process of planning to powder coat my KX250's frame, hubs, and triple clamps that same color, have my fork tubes, shock body, and calipers hard anodized black.
I am, however, going to have to wait till my graphics are shot to powder coat the swing arm, which is ok, because I can't decide what color to do it.
