come on you guys! i need to get this bike back on the road, and i need it repainted. lets see some good ideas!

so far i have got this...



of course it will be 620i.e. but you get the idea. the light part will be a pearlescent white and then probably a metallic black. with green and red striping.

landshark... is this doable?

I like the style you posted a picture of. I keep thinking the white might look nice in a light tan or bone color and look more classic, just let me know when you are ready [thumbsup]

You mean like the "Ducati Mecchanica" type color? That would be cool!

i was thinking that too. but i guess i would have to see the colors in person. im ready. i am passing most of it off on the rents as a christmas present ;D

i will definately let you know soon. i am hoping sooner than later. my girlrfiend has told me she has noticed a major difference in my attitude since my bike was wrecked! hahah i guess i dont have it to wind down with so ive kinda been a basket case. stressful.,...

thanks for the ideas!

That would look real cool. The pearlescent white (like the S4R) would look really good, but I don't know about a metallic black with that. I think it could look better with the normal high gloss black and pearlescent white as a highlight. Get it back together.

Geez landshark, you gotta tell everyone about my retro color idea. :)

Nosolace, I am going to get my stripe done in the next couple of weeks hopefully (gotta order the cowl tomorrow) and I am still deciding, but the retro bone color has been my first choice for a while now. If you are still up in the air, hopefully I will be able to get everything going and done this year 2006 and very early 07 and you can see how it looks on the black before you paint.

I actually like the bright white like was originally posted. It looks retro yet racy at the same time.

Sorry, I thought we were talking about white or a shadow of white on your bike. I don't remember anything about retro. Also those two colors I posted didn't really show the true colors I was trying to get. I think this one is closer to the look I was going for or thinking of. [thumbsup]

A bone or off white is what I want. I have some mock-ups and I will send you later tonight. It is difficult to get a seat cowl in fiberglass or plastic right now. 3 weeks from dealer already painted black, the ones on ebay are in Italy so who knows how long.


Nosolace get that thing going and get back out there.

You don't need no stinkin' mirrors.... well, maybe at least one. A buddy of mine only has a 1" round mirror stuck on the inside of his fairing on his R1. I think the R stands for retard (just kidding buddy...!) ;D

Anyway, didn'y Rule62 have some stock mirrors since rule 63 is "replace your mirrors"? Or are you waiting on some stocking stuffers?

I got the mirrors (stock) if you want 'em. Either that or you could pick up some cheap-o's at the bicycle shop like I did.

PM'd ya about the mirrors. Probably easiest to catch me at work. Other than that, I've got a box of misc parts (fender, plate mount, beer tray, nuts & bolts) that I've taken off the "banana". If you're ever in South Phoenix (16th an Southern) gimme a call. You can take a look and if there's anything you need...
My stock pipes were gonna go on eBay sometime this week but it's better juju to keep it amongst friends. [thumbsup]
