Here's what I have planned when I find a good bike:

Old school Honda red/white/blue paint job

F3 wheel swap (that or Ducati GT1000 wire spoke wheels)

Vance and hines SS2R full system for CBR900.

Old school gold Honda wing logo on the tank. CB900F Super Sport stickers on the back. And both covered in so much clear that you can't feel them.

Pro Taper bars.

Power commander.

Continental Road Attack 2's

Way down the road:

Swingarm swap. RC51 if possible, otherwise CBR600 or 900.

Traditional forks from a CBR929

Dual rear shock setup like on a CB1300.

Right now I have billet levers adjustable levers, Billet bar end mirrors, Renthal UL and wheels stripes and I just painted the bike meteor gray metallic. No decals. Also have the fender eliminator and tight little bullet style signals that are aluminum looking but, may paint those to match as well. Also color matched the rear grab handle so it blends a little better. Not sure if I'll eliminate it later. Lastly a corbin seat.

NIce bike mate, I like your paint job ... I have just sprayed my bike matte black (I know I know i will get pics up soon im such a hypocrite) I was wondering what you use to wash your bike and protect it as I want to keep it from getting glossy.

I actually sprayed mine base clear so it's glossy now. Done that to both of my 9ners now. Not sure what Paint you shot but flat I would only wash.
