I personally like the black frames & swingarms on bikes such as the R7, RC51, and I believe it's the ZX-7R Kawasaki? I know a lot of people really like polished aluminum and this would head toward the opposite end of the spectrum. Opinions?

I am not the biggest fan of chrome/polished either.

I 2nd the black frame look. However, I do not have any ideas or suggestions on how to convert your frame either. Perhaps Krylon, just kidding.

Anybody else?

My black frame ont he RC 51 makes me look slimmer. I like it.

Polished frames are cool too.

seriously...I love the black frames. Is powdercoating an option? What about anodizing an aluminum frame? I read somewhere someone had done it, but it never came out right.
I like my bike's matte grey/silver as well. The black wheels are nice, easy to make look clean. I hate excessive polished/chrome stuff; just my personal taste.

I was thinking of using a Marks-a-lot.

I like the black frames and swingarms, especially on black bikes. All black is cool, stealthy.

GCO,

LOL! You do it first and then if it works I'll repaint the 51.


Kyle J.,

Who pulled your chain? Black frames rule. I work on Raptors and ride a 51... I have to maintain a strong dedication to black frames. Sorry.
