    Like it? Or not?

    I have done this to my bikes for years. I like the contrast between the black head and the sanded exposed aluminum fins.

    That looks sharp. I like high contrast also.

    It?s pretty easy to do, I take some wet/dry 600 grit sand paper and with a small block of wood as a backer sand flat along the edge of the fins. The paint will just sand away reveling the aluminum below.

    I always liked this style (I thought it was done with high temp paint – this is better).

    I like that it draws attention to the motor.
    God made mud. God got lonesome. So God said to some of the mud, "Sit up!" "See all I've made," said God, "The hills, the sea, the sky, the stars." And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around. Lucky me, lucky mud. I, mud, sat up and saw what a nice job God had done.

    It does look good.
    You are obviously both a patient person and have pride in ownership. Good for you.

    Like the look. Too lazy to do it...so far.
