Hi all! Been a long while since I have been on here along with owning a Paso. I was just talking about how I would contemplate owning a Paso again (the last one I had just started becoming more of a heartache than a headache) and after browsing Craigslist I see this!!

http://newjersey.craigslist.org/mcy/4392025619.html

I looked and there is no mention of the tricolor paint scheme with production numbers... Makes me worried that this is a custom paint job? I have seen others like this before though. I haven't made contact with the owner yet, but they live nearby so I plan to see it soon. I miss owning the Paso. I appreciate any insight I can get on the paint code. Otherwise hope to be a reunited Paso owner! :beer:

of course that`s a custom pant job. The decals on the front side fairings are incorrect, the stripes are missing and the rims were painted as well.

I wouldn't worry about the decals.

If you like the lime green just go for it - I'd say around 2k if runs well.

Careful: don't forget to add in the cost of new tires. the mounted Michelins are dangerous really.

Black , really black , black as the inside of a black mans blackest bits on a dark night , in fact they are so black that when a black man looked at them he started turning white ..... yeah ( bro ), they sucked the black right offa him ( yes , it was Michael Jackson , he had heard how black my tires were and had to see for himself :D )
Or , my camera was set on sepia :D
an any how you can tell if they are ok by pulling those prickly bits that new tires have, if they just break off that's not good , but these ones here ( in the pic ) will stretch all the way to your house G , and still be black :D :D
