Custom Paint Options - PLEASE VOTE!!!
« on: July 05, 2014, 03:31:41 PM »
Hello Everyone!  I am doing a bit of research and development for some possible custom paint schemes.  I know what I like in custom paint, but I am curious as to what others would like to see on their own bikes.

I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO VOTE REGARDLESS IF YOU ARE IN THE PAINT MARKET OR NOT!   :)

Please choose TWO different colors that you would like to see and also please choose ONE accent option.  This information will help me to create fantastic custom paint jobs that will be available to everyone at affordable pricing.  Keep in mind these are just themes, anyone can get anything they want at an increase or decrease in price depending on what is wanted.   The purpose with this project is to offer some cool racing kits that can be modified slightly to each individuals personal preferences.

Also, PLEASE feel free to add your feedback or possible paint options that you would like to see available as well.  To make this project successful all of your feedback is important.  Thanks!

ELECTROLUMINESCENT

I'm still looking into that.  But I guarantee it will be the most expensive paint job you've ever seen.  Mostly because it is new and because there is only 1 company making it at the moment.

I've been going over ideas myself. I work in a factory paint shop and can get discount supplies and friends that paint. A buddy of mine  took Miami-Dade green and put a pearl in the clear coat on his bike. Didn't turn out how he planned but looks really good. I was thinking something more classic like cream white with a pearl for my RE, but I do like the gold hand painted lines on the tank.

My two favorite colors for British style machines are BRG with yellow pinstripes or black with gold lettering and stripes. '60s Lotus formula cars and John Player Special race cars of the '70s. In the 1920's there were some race planes, Ike and Mike that were white with gold. That might translate to an RE.

I saw the crème color with the racing dark green stripe which was cool because the factory offers a deep red.

I think BRG with black wheels and frame looks very classy. And Maybe add a thin gold racing stripe...but understated of course. :)

So guys, please tell me!  If you were going to have a custom paint job done specifically for you, what would you want it to look like?  Colors?  Graphics?  Stripes?  Concepts?  Themes?  Thanks for all the feedback so far.  Let's Keep It Coming In!    :D
