Painting The Track Bike Opinions And Photoshop HELP!

Ok guys so I have some extra money laying around and have a few cosmetic blemishes on the CBR. I spoke with Tony and we are going to paint it in a couple weeks when the off season presents itself. Now the skys the limit Its going to be a 2 color combo with a tape outline of the wingss . While I do this Im also having the rims powdercoated a wet look because the black factory paint is starting to chip a little bit. So any opinions are helpful. Also do you guys like sponsor packs on the bellypan? I like the MotoGp And World Superbike look but then again im not getting paid to advertise them..

The color combo's that I have tossed around
Black With Yellow Wings With A White Outline-Black Rims with yellow tape
White With Gunmetal Grey Wings and a Black Outline - Maybe White rims with black tape and black decals..
Just throw out some ideas Im all ears I really like flouresents but the price is outrageous.

This is my bike as it sits
cbr

Some examples of Tony's work on several 600rr's

If you don't mind waiting a little while (4 to 5 weeks), you can get a full kit painted however you want it. The 2 guys off 600rr.net that I've PM'd said about $550 including shipping for the fairings, for a seat cowl and mounting hardware, and a windscreen


This is an example of a race fairings that was painted in the ten kate honda theme, but they'll paint whatever theme you want

yes....motofansclub

make sure you let them know its for a trackbike. they'll have different molds for it.

also, make sure you ask them when the last revision of the molds were done.

i don't have first hand experience with how the track molds are since there aren't many reviews on the site.

Yeah I have sharkskins which other than Attack have awesome feedback and I have a set of optimal in my garage right now.. I can say you get what you pay for the optimal and chinese are very very hard plastic and would easily explode on a lowside... The sharkskins have so much flex.. It looks like the white and grey are looking pretty sexy to me too.. My car and truck are silver as well haha
