Next step is to apply the final color - Suede Nuclear Orange (satin metallic orange)
I was all over the lot trying to settle on the final color. Then I saw this color on a Victory motorcycle and the stars aligned! The plan is to try and complement the hot rod black frame parts.
I decided to use the decal scheme from a '75 Roadster. The bottom picture is a mock up of the final version shown in the top picture. I also used the same vinyl reflective decal material used on '75 Rupp's.
Frame Assembly Started - Gas Tank Painted with Custom Decal
The gas tank is painted bright orange with a satin clear coat. I used 1975 Rupp decals for the sides and had a custom Enduro R/S decal made for the top of the tank using a similar layout to the 75 Roadster II decal.
