My custom painted Dart piranha flyscreen

I should say BADLY custom painted! Still, looks not bad I think. I did a quick and dirty green spray and silver stripe. A little messy, but I’ll just pretend I was going deliberately for a rat-bike aesthetic.

Looks good mate,

Well done. I wouldn't have thought of doing that, very unique looking.

Cheerio,

Roy

Not bad.

What's that big white sticker on your fork tube about?

Looks good. Did you clear coat it? Did you raise the Dart for better airflow over you? I like screens but not the gap between it and the headlight.

I’ll try out different heights, but just started with this. I haven’t been out on the highway yet, just around town. Definitely redirects the air to your head — we’ll see..

I did spray on a clear gloss coat, which I thought would make it lll ok better, but it sort of made it look worse. You can only really see up closer, but the coat didn’t add much of a gloss, just sort made the imperfections stand out more! But I’m not much of a painter.

Maybe itís all in the eye of the beholder but, it looks pretty good from here.

Oh crap, I think you’re right... They sent me the classic rather than the Piranha! I kept thinking it seemed taller than I expected. I checked and I definitely ordered the piranha. The question is whether they’ll do anything about it after I have painted it. Hmm...
