    My 04 Matte Black is in very good nick apart from scabby engine cases, after checking prices, ( £140 each) I decided to check other options, so I bought 2 used cases ( £30 clutch, £25 Gen cover ), then had them both powder coated for a total of £60, yes, its not mint, but its miles better looking,

    Why not. It’s your bike, and what you do to it is down to you alone. If someone picks fault, let them live with the error of their ways.

    As long as you’re happy, who gives a toss what other people think, looks good and you’ve saved a shedload of spondies what’s not to like.

    That matt finish on the Bird is in my view the least offensive scheme Honda ever came out with.
