It all started when a good customer of ours wanted his new 500 EXC loaded up with everything imaginable. I asked what sort of theme he wanted. "I like black" he says. From there on I knew what to do.
We have already done a few bike builds with the EXC's in the past so I had a good idea of the parts we were going to use. It was just a matter of choosing the right color options so nothing clashed. We didn't want to just "blackout" the entire bike, that's too easy and played out. This had to be tastefully done.
All in all this build went very good. The only snag was that no one makes a black headlight mask. Luckily our local graphics company was able to make us up a background graphic for the headlight mask. Everything else went together smoothly. To say the customer was pretty stoked to see his new bike for the first time was an understatement! Also I didn't share any sneak peeks during the build. The icing on the cake was taking him and his good friend for a ride the following week and being able to see this beautiful project bike put to good use and ridden like it was intended to be ridden!
