Hi, I posted this shot in Jasonmol's post and thought it was 'bout time I introduced the "Beast" as I call it in its own slot ...

I have had my GT since April 2005 - I'm hoping one day to a custom paint job on it but honestly I really like green...

Aren't these GTs nice machines?
peace

Thats a great looking GT with a stunning backdrop.

Hello kabcdog
thanks for getting in touch!
The "drop" is Fremantle docks, down by the south "mole".
I know what you mean about the paint jobs - why ruin it??
However, an old fart ... err, I mean scooterist from back along said that "a scooter is not a real scooter until its been customised"... work that out.
I'm 43 so I class my self as "old fart-ish".
I like my "Beast" as it is. Might but a heavier green looking leather seat but that's about it.
Bloody eck, what goes with that colour as a two tone . any ideas, send them my way....
Easy!

She looks pretty good already... I like a nice clean look.

If you don't want to go for a paint job this site (http://www.signnetwork.com/) has some nice decals for accents. Perhaps something subtle like some white lines or something that expresses you. You can customize what they show to any dimensions you want.

I've got a couple that 'express' who I am... I have to borrow my daughter's camera since my digital is broken right now. Now that everything's green here in Minnesota I need to clean up my GT, find a picturesque place to park it and get a 'fashion shot' of my scoot too.

I agree, 'love the GT, it does everything I want it to do.

HI Paul,

If you didnt want to tinker with the paint job...

I'm looking at getting my seat retrimmed. Not entirely sure of design yet but I think it will relate to the George Cross.

I'm also looking at some custom designed graphics for the front panel (possibly the whole panel!) and may be the rear cowels.

I agree that it's not a scooter till its been customised according to some!

After that I'd like to start with some upgrades. Nothing too out the ordinary, Pipe, weights, front shock. Maybe for the styling a small bubble style screen if I can find one I like...

Guess I better start saving....

Cheers

Andy

It's under construction for me too... I don't know how long it'll be down but there's sure a variety of stuff there.
