Hi Kornfeld, nice colour idea - think about mattlack instead of gloss, the strips in dark and these in gloss for a shiny contrast. Like the bike - but the chrom muffler !??? Have you think about coated him with "ceramic"? Itīs a perfect way to
give the part an excellent surface without the problem of only " black thermo" spray. It`s possible to put your name, strips, flagg or what ever on it !! If you need an address - mail to me. Andreas

What a feature those mufflers are...

You will decide your own colour...
but BRG is such a heavey colour, dark and moody
for dark coloured bike with so much Black allready...

Zero XV can get away BRG because big beautifull alloy motor
to balance heavey colour...

But I know fancy bright colour is like, look at me, you don't want...
Not on Muscle Machine...

I had same issue, but went for Venus Orange & Cream...
In real life, works great... very independant, not like 'same as the crowd'
But were you live, and what is the thinking, over there is different I know...

But muffler location is stunning.
hey this is just my 2 cents... spent.

Today the tank and seat came back from the painter.
Now I have to find some nice checkered decals for the finishing touch.
Really like the result and the colour.
