Check out this site, they have almost every bike in a 3d model.

http://www.turbosquid.com/3d-models/...d-model/351020

This is the paint job for my novice season, but I am still on the fence on which scheme... To me they all look pretty good, hard to decide. The cool thing is that I can paint it for about 125.00 in materials so if I don't like it I just strip it down and start over. I have till Jan 5th off so I have all kind of time

That is where I got the inspiration for the orange and white. I just didn't want to copy them straight up... That bike is out....

Keep in mind the number plate on the tail has to surround the number with 1" of visible number plate, be it white or yellow. Just food for thought. As a novice you will have to have a 3 digit number.

The plate is actually much bigger than it looks in this picture for some reason. A question though how big do the numbers have to be? Do you know off the top of your head?

CMRA Number Requirements

Here are the official rules on the CMRA site :

http://www.cmraracing.com/pdf/2008/R..._rulebook1.pdf

Here is the text without the pictures.

Number Display Requirements
All machines must carry three sets of numbers, one on the front and one on each side of the tail (see exception below). Numbers must be visible with the rider on the machine. Numbers must be black, standard block lettering with no serifs, outlines or shadowing. The front number plate/background must be 12" x 10". Numbers must be 8" high, be spaced 3/4" apart and allow 1" of unobstructed number plate/background border. Numbers must be the rider’s correct CMRA competition number and the only time a rider may change their competition number is when they are renewing their Competition License. Side number plate/background fields must be behind the rider on the machine’s tail section, may not be smaller than 10" x 8" with numbers no less than 6’’ high and the number display may either be mounted on both sides of the tail section (not
wrapping around onto the top of the seat or out of vision on the tail section) or mounted on top of the tail section with the number oriented so as to be viewed from the rear of the motorcycle (see illustration below). If your tail section does not have enough room, attach a correctly sized number plate. Machines not meeting number plate requirements will not pass Technical Inspection and will not be scored when racing. If you are found to have illegible numbers you may not race again until they are correct. Machines racing in Motard, Vintage, or Mini classes will be the only exception to number plate placement and specific number plate requirements may be found in the class structure details.
Numbers will be assigned from 11 to 999. Two-digit numbers are reserved for Expert status riders only. If a rider is racing with the CMRA as a guest (using an approved racing license instead of the CMRA competition license) and their number conflicts with a CMRA racer’s number, the guest racer may be instructed by a Registration official to alter his/her number for that race.
EXPERT riders must use white number plates with black numbers.
NOVICE and PROVISIONAL NOVICE riders must use yellow number plates with black numbers.
ENDURANCE TEAMS must run black numbers on White or Yellow plates. It is recommended to use the plate color of the majority of the team members (i.e., If three members are Novice, then the team should run a yellow plate). Endurance machines being run in sprint races must conform to the rules as listed above.
The final decision for number plate conformity and legibility rests with the CMRA officials. Riders not providing legible numbers may be required to modify the number plate, number plate background, or numbers themselves.
19

The net net is that Novice riders have to use Yellow backgrounds with Black numbers. The dimensions are spelled out above. Glad I read that before I painted the plates! I think I would have been fine but nice to know ahead of time!

I think that bike is pretty bad for sure. I just want something you don't see everyday and is not incredibly difficult to paint. I can do some stuff but I don't like to venture out too much.

Thanks for the idea, I really do like the Embassy bike.
