"How difficult is it to sell a bike after you've done custom body work to it, i.e. custom paint jobs, etc.?"

It is more difficult to sell than a stock one no matter what anyone else says on this board. 'Custom' anything is going to be a hard sell, especially to those that don't like your idea of 'custom'. My advice is to stick with stock.

That plastic seat should be worth at least 2 trips a year to the Gyne doc.

Haha, that is gross. I'm not considering dousing the whole thing in Pepto Bismol, by any means, but I thought a little feminine touch might be cool. I want a black and pink helmet, so I thought doing a little matchy-matchy might be fun. Thanks for the tips though, I will definitely keep them all in mind.

I never worry about resale, do what you want with it. Yes it will be harder to sell than a stock bike but why worry about that? just ride it.

That bike was painted that way as a prank on the rider, who took it quite well and went out to show that he was better than anyone else on the racetrack, pink or no!

As the Safety Queen, I should remind you that bike colors can affect your visibility. You see that I have a yellow bike with plenty of red here and there. There's a reason for that! People can see me. If you get a black bike and gear, you'll be more likely to be invisible than if you have brighter colors.

Women riders are precious. I don't want to lose any of 'em.

The reason is when the cops look for the motorcyle that just got ran into the bushes they can hopefully find the bike a bit easier and maybe the body will be near by.

People don't see when they aren't looking Sachi. Bright colors never helped some dope that is texting his girlfriend while driving.
