does this mean that the gauges will be on the drag bars with

Cool

>paint: black & red & charcoal

do we iron the details of that out now or later? (I assume
you guys have an approximate idea of what I'm looking for)

red frame
red engine body
red heads with brushed-out fins
red everything that isn't matte metal
black and charcoal flames on gastank

I also been meaning to ask if Pat signs the bikes or how
you otherwise indicate that it's a kennedy custom. What
I thought would be toooootally cool, if he can do it is
to put "Made for Marcus J. Ranum, date/<signature>" on the
gas tank someplace discrete.
