Hey Isippell,
Did you paint your saddle bags, or have them done?
I've got the same saddle bags and a '78 XS11 fairing I need to paint... what kind of paint was used? How did you "prep" them?
Did you use a clear coat over the color? Did you use any pin striping or other graphics?

...I'd like to paint these parts before it starts getting too cold...
TIA

.. my arsenal [or pile, how ever you want to look at it]
most are not as proud as Hobbys bikes as they are in various stages of completion, only 2 of the XSs are in working order at the moment. i have riden the red standard up and down the street before starting the resto on it and the special with the tall seat will become a bobber one day after i get caught up with the other projects. these should keep me busy for a while.
.. these pictures were hard to take today, i had to dodge the storm bursts and hury to put the European bikes back in the shop
before they melt!









.. and we musn't forget about the two lovelies that enjoy livery out behind the gar-age.
