:( starting this kind of production in france equals shooting you a bullet in the nose...
i think i should définitively leave wife , children , home and friends and go live my life elsewhere...where life is more cool for workers ...where government don't ask you to pay more than you win .
good idéa , no ? :?
let's stop dreamin'....
i have thousand idéas this kind in mind . and the best i can do is trying to include them in the customer's bikes....and then ; waiting to see later the same part manufactured by a strong factory :wink: ....

don't worry : i live this very well . ( i'm 48 old and i need more than this to be out )

Fran-6: Nice work. You are creative as hell. We love the look. What color paint is that? Wife likes it for her ULH and you know how that works. I truly like the craftsmanship on this bike very nice. Great looking ride.

Uncle Joe's streamliner was sky blue....
but we all use to see the color of this scoot thru magasine's pics....
( so : exact color is hard to determinate )
i have choosen a semi-gloss sky blue ...with some light grey inside ( kinda " hey! look at the sky : it's gonna rain soon..." )
the game consist in " you must not be able to see at the first look if this is "pure-blue" or "blue-with-a-something-strange-inside"
so : i have made severals samples with my painter ( under a good ol' sun's lightning )
about all the other parts painted in "black" too : i have choosen a special color :
well :
when ya see the scoot ; you think "this is black" .
but when you put a REAL black-painted part side by side : then , you see it is a deep-deep-dark-BLUE !

result is as i hoped : the scoot is new .....but it looks OLD...

cool , no :wink:


P.S: thanks for all the comments !
