The point hit home with VTX owner Dan Shafer from Atlanta, Georgia,. who aimed to showcase his Honda's massive jugs in as flattering a light as possible. A stray red Porsche Boxster Shafer spotted in his neighborhood provided the visual inspiration for his project and the paint began to flow. Gallons of the red were judiciously applied by Pauleez Custom Cycles in Atlanta, who used the crimson shade as an accent for the engine, bodywork and lettering. The tank, fenders and fork tubes were painted black with red pearl fogged in over the base color, while the engine, brake calipers, tank panel and wheel insets were dipped in red for contrast. The rear drive and radiator received an ebony coat to blend them into the background.
