    2012 Horsethief Custom Paint Job

    Love my horsey but have always hated the diarrhea green paint job. So....what do you do when you hate a paint job? Went flat black with some custom airbrush done...check out the chili pepper on the front.

    Really nice! The red definitely pops on the black.

    I actually don't mind the stock army green but it's not the most exciting, wouldn't have minded some color choice.

    Not really sure where they get "Twister Grey" out of the green either.

    Between the sandblasting/powder coating/custom airbrushing I think it all came to $225-$250. Well worth it for me. Feels like I just got a brand new bike!

    That looks great! You can never go wrong w flat black and a few simple graphics. I may have to think about doing something w ketchup and mustard looking Mamasita.

    That is stellar. Still the old style soviet green, but that looks downright awesome.
