IMO, there's to much black on the front. hold the chrome one's up there and see how it looks. If you don't like it, " RED ". ;)

Pretty much any body shop with a decent painter should be able to spray HOK. It's really not that big of a deal, I'd either go with the chrome or red like the fenders. You got plenty of black on it now.

I got that candy and gold on the shelf here Corrie, if you wanted that color. But I think the bike needs more black myself.... Damien's supposed to be dark :D

Oh yea. It would be nice to find some clear decals to go over the painted plastics over the gas tank, so we wouldn't scratch the paint with our legs so bad. I might be getting some madeup soon if you're interested. Painted plastics look the best, but they're the biggest pain

I am totally interested. My shit is getting messed up in spots. Definitly need some clear decals! Tony you got an eye for this sort of stuff. In your opinion what would you do if you were me on it?

I'll let you know when I get some made up fo sho. I would def not do chrome, just to go with the theme of the bike. Black is just as reflective as chrome, it's just darker. I would probably go with the scheme you got going on now, or maybe try some of the BlackChrome powdercoat... it's more like a very reflective charcoal color, but it's dark and evil
