You know, I don't hate the white powder coat. I could see where some color choices would have gone very wrong.
Pretty machine, GLWS.

Thanks - Ive seen it done in red and blue powder but I thought white would be nicer - I wanted it to look more like Evel's white leather jacket which has the same star graphics as the cab!

I can’t tell from the pics, does it have the proper EK popbumper caps at the top?
I’m personally not a fan of the white armor. I think original stainless would’ve looked better, but that’s just my opinion. Others may like it.

The Hardtop was my pause but nice looking game bump.

Thanks, It has the correct EK caps at the top - I put red LEDs In there and the colour is kind of blooming in the pics.
