oops. should have read alittle farther. anyays i did mine. i am not goingt o lie man. it's a biotch but well worth it. step one if you can handle the bike in the garage for three days and can stay away from girls, playstation, and your boys than here is the fastest and easiest way. take off your rear tire and chain. take off your fairings, gas tank, and rear seat and fairing. clean the hell outta your swingarm and frame with honda polish(worked great for me) than start with your sandpaper, start with #220 and work your way up to about #1000 or #1500 while using wet sanding(put water on frame basically) it will look scary at first but keep going and you will start to see your progress. when you get to #1000 or #1500(if you want to get show quality you will no longer see scoring marks. than use mothers to shine it up and your in business. it will take A LONG TIME. don't get discouraged. or you could pay a polish shop to do it for about 700 bucks. your call. good luck man. it will lokk tight when your done.

"not sure what your name is carbon" not sure if you meant "why your name is carbon" but i picked that name bc i have carbon fiber heel guards, carbon fiber front fenders, and a carbon fiber two bros racing slip on. Not a lot of carbon fiber but just enough <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

carbon...there is a shop in my area that is suppose to do that kind of work if your interested in coming to N.E. PA. If so let me know and I'll try to get the details for you. Your bike looks great. Mine is green too and I'm in the process of heading where you are. How hard were the seat skins to install...I really like those.

Just talked to these guys. They build custom bikes in fact are in Cal. right now for photo shoots for Hot Bikes and a couple of calendars. Anyway, for a show quality job it would be about $12-1500. They said give them a buzz and they would see what they could do. I've seen their work and they are good.
