Hi Tim: I'm having second thoughts too. The motor doesn't stand out in a silver frame. And Ashton Bond chimed in too saying he liked the orange. It won't be orange again, but I'm still working on the colours. I looked at the silver frame because there was a racer this year, really fast, Honda 4 cylinder, blue tank and silver frame, well prepared bike. He did a great job on it.
And then there's Scott Martin's bikes. Black frames and Honda red. That's a possibility.
The paint has to look fast - that's what most important......

That's Brent Waller's P2 MWP race bike. A great example to follow! Here's a rare photo of it at rest....any other time, it's just a bluuurrr.... ;)
