Red bikes rock! I have the Ruby Red metallic on my 2019 Scout Icon. Your Bobber looks great.

Still no passenger pegs (or new phone 馃槄), alas, I gave Ruby her first bath and had to take some shots. Got a lil crazy with the editor and made myself a new phone background, she's sitting pretty now though!

I love what you did with the brake lines. I ordered similar covers for mine. I can see in some places you used zip ties to secure it. Can I ask what you used near the handlebars? It looks smooth!

Good eye! Yes I used zip ties down below for extra security but nothing up top on the bars. The wrap I bought snaps closed so the zips really aren't necessary at all, just for peace of mind 鉁

Had to work late last night and work early this morning, so instead of sleep I installed all my recent parts 馃榿

Not going to lie, I totally screwed up the right side decal. Pulled the top sheet off before the soap mix had time to dry underneath the decal itself, lots of bubble. Also I don't like the location, it is too far forward. Even worse, the color is not what I was wanting, it looks too white!

Already ordered another set of gunmetal decals, but here is what it looks like all dressed up with silver 馃ゲ

Looks good . The whites not to bad but I do like the color of your bike .
Sometimes I wish I had a rear seat but my wife has no interest but man it would be nice to have my lady on the back

Gun metal decals came in, no thanks to usps for folding the flat pack to fit in my mailbox.馃槕 Luckily the creases were only in the wax paper.

I only did the exhaust side and the difference is subtle in artificial light (will take more pics when it's not freezing rain outside) but it's MUCH better than the silver. I'm still debating if it's too loud on the tank or not. Don't want to distract the eye and detract from the overall look. Gloss black over the matte black possibly? I think that might look pretty slick!

Anyways, here's the indoor shots from today, as always opinions are welcome

@KingChow, I think the new decal looks great. Definitely not too loud. The gun metal ties nicely with the silver cylinder heads and kind of forms a triangle, drawing your eyes to the headdress and engine. At least based on these pics.
