Just cleaned the Bike up a bit, got directionals working on one side at least, and just bought some new ones for the other side on Ebay, along with some mirrors

Here are some pics of my $400 Bike:

Looks pretty plain, but thats kind of cool to, debating weather or not to put the Suzuki graphics back on...also toying with the idea to paint the bike yellow (love yellow crotch rockets)your thoughts...

Looks pretty nice for only $400 and doesnt look bad for an early 90s bike either http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

Don't put any graphics on the bike.

Get the rims painted or powder-coated something other than red. Maybe you can just go with simple silver and make it match your SE-R. You could also try to find some kind of material for your seat that matches the seats in your SE-R. Just don't put an SE-R badge on your bike.

I like bikes that are one color. Ducatis are my favorite.

Maybe you could paint the rear of the bike white, like some of the Ducatis. On a racing bike, that's where you put your number.

The best looking multi-colored bike that I've seen recently is the Yamaha YZF-R1...

New silver R1 > Blue
Seeing these things on the street is very badass.

Here's a picture of a Ducati with the tail painted white, like I was talking about earlier:

Anyone seen the new 999 monoposto?

Thanks for the input guys, I definitely like the look of the Ducati.

BTW..took it for a quick rip up the street last night, and OMG, the acceleration is unbelievable, Iím not sure but i think it may even be quicker than the Spec V
