Dang, bud.  These K bikes may be the platonic ideal of motorcycles, but i do find them to have a little nagging spirit that goads one to try ever faster around the bend that bikes with less Jawohl!! may not.  Sadly our motorways may not be maintained to autobahn standards.  Glad there was no sudden stop at the end of that slide for you.

wet sanding and polishing makes you look like the painter you are not!  I was able to completely remove most traces of runs or orange peel.

Hey, don't let the cat out of the bag.

Yes I did use a clear coat on top of the basecoat. I use standard hardener and some thinnner in a ratio of 4:1:1 ie 4 parts clear and one each of thinner and hardener.


I was pretty worried about spraying the clear but actually it was not too bad.  I also discovered that if a grinder make you look like the welder you are not then wet sanding and polishing makes you look like the painter you are not!  I was able to completely remove most traces of runs or orange peel.

It's easy for me to sell a car (usually) or almost anything, but every time I've sold a bike I get sellers remorse and the thought I've made a big mistake. Don't think I could bring myself to sell a bike like this one.

Never heard of one umlaut though, that sounds like the loneliest number since the number one begun.

Couple of questions that I might have missed in the previous posts:
1. You are using a clear coat as the final? You mentioned it but as though it were an option.
2. Are you using a hardner in addition to the reducer? Specifically in the clear coat assuming you did use a clear coat.

For $50 I'll stick with the wheelbarrow handle rig I am using now.
Action photo, please. Are you using the rocker panel of an SUV for a fulcrum?
