That's good and it will cost more due to pinstripe and custom work. So, I wanna say to paint the purple on the tank cover and tank yellow.

the thing about the alstare purple, is that alone, yes its pretty gay. it needs to have that light blue striping around it for it to look good.

1st choice would be purple but only if you can add/incorperate the light blue striping. if you cant then 2nd choice would be yellow

Two colors, just like Romeo's pic. If you're gonna paint it, do it right the first time. Play off the colors of the fairings below, and tie into the lines of its paint scheme. All yellow or all purple would just look too "bolt on", and it'll ruin the design and stand out like a sore thumb. My .02
