Hi Rich, just got back from Georgia, I stopped at three dealer ships and not one of them had a 2017 SM on the floor. I asked them WTF ? and was told that style bike is not really desirable down here. They did stock KTM though( go figure). Anyways I have a few different samples I will send you and you can see for yourself if they will work for you. Also Rich if they don't match you can go to the web site on the back of the sample and see if you can find something that looks closer. The only problem, the samples look different than the color on the computer. Send me you address and I will get them sent out.

Thanks
Joe

Joe,

Thanks for trying and too bad you didn't have better luck. Let me see what you have and we can go from there. I will see if I can send you a private message with my address rather than leaving it out here.

Received the samples today. Tardis Blue is the winner. Closest color to the rims for sure. Let's go with that. Rack looks great so far. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Hi Rich, I just received three color samples Friday , and should have another four coming tomorrow. I will get them shipped out as soon as the other four get here.

Don't worry, I have not forgot about you , just want to get a good match.

I just picked it up at the post office, I was looking at your foot pegs and seen you left the tiny springs still in them. I hope you have the BB size detente balls that wedge between the bracket and pegs.

Joe,

Didn't realize that I left a springs in there. I do have the 2 BB sized balls that go with the pegs. What are your thoughts about the great shield?

I just peeled it off. Still very tacky, should go right back on no problem.

Awesome! Can't wait to see how this all turns out. I have some before pictures that I'll set up with after pictures when all is completed and ready to go. This way others on here can see your work. After sending those parts out I should have sent along my RTIC tumbler along to have you powder coat that the same color as well. Would have looked cool. Have you ever done those? I've seen Yeti tumblers done before. Anyhow, shoot some pictures of your progress if you could.
