Thanks Guys. Want to add a belly pan in the near future and paint that and the plastic side covers (currently a satin grey color) to the body color (Candy Sonoma Red). Having difficulty working out if I want to respray the fork legs to the matching gold of the top triple and other small parts or restore them to the bright silver they once were.
Here's the left side to help. (Some people like the gold pillion handle - and some don't.)  Any constructive comments are welcomed.  :thanks:

Good lookin bike! Its your bike. What do U like. I like the triple clamp and bar, probly fork legs also. but thats goin with metal parts being gold. Personal pref(mine) think grab bar should match red. But its not my scoot.  Do what U like and U will enjoy it, I just ordered alloy drag bars(gold) for red 98.  Didnt think a bandit should have wire wheels. a step back in performance/tech. but saw one that was awsome.   sandy
