Classic Honda

By SteveNZ  
Took a few shots after cleaning my motorcycle (1972 Honda CB350Four, restored by a previous owner, for those interested) in the garden yesterday and decided to try out a certain technique detailed within the pages of this site.
Reasonably happy with the result - although I discovered you can spend hours tweaking bits here and there, eliminating unwanted colours reflected in the chromework, etc.
This is my first attempt at this technique, so all comments/critique welcomed. (Bound to be something I've missed or messed up!) Thanks for all the remarks and votes on my other images.
Cheers -- Steve.

Hi Steve, I like what you've done here and I'd like to try this with a pic of my bike. Could you reference the link to this site that explains how to do it?

Nice shot and presentation , I had the 750 four and recently was at a customers house and saw it rotting at the back of the garage Sad
I couldn't get any response from an offer to buy it back ,

Hi Tony - Link is here (details are for Gimp, but I used Paint Shop Pro):
Let me know when you've done a pic of your bike.
