FAIL. I removed the decal and painted it flat black but it ended up having stripes (uneven paint) -- #noobpaintingskills . So I sanded it down with 2000 grit to level the paint. Now it just looks like unpainted plastic LOL.
This is a small-ish bike and I'm not... I'm 6'1 210lbs. My riding stance was a little hunched more than I liked with the stock seat so I cut it in half. I'm replacing these with #bratstyle seats anyway so it'll be OK if I f*ck it up.
BUT they turned out so well! They look like they could've been offered as a factory option when purchasing this bike. I might rock them for the time being while I wait for parts and plan out the rest of the build.
