woah can't spend to much it is a race bike. I'd be doing a rattle can job so it won't look as finished as these but maybe some trick taping to get it looking like those.

I'd say do a simple one or two color scheme. Its a shame to have a nice paint job like that that then wad it up on the track. thats why I plan on getting a compressor and a hvlp gun so that I can do my own stuff.

Thats not anything like CarbonR1's Kawi paint(:confused2). I just left his house and although his is Kawi green and black, they look NOTHING alike.

That said, I like the second one. It looks more "business like" to me.
