Brown be gone

Thats a great paint scheme, I like it !!!! Never have liked the two tone brown/black.

2013 FLTRX B B P, 11 in Paughco RG Apes, V & H Monster Round, American custom dual header, SE high flow air intake, 8.5 in Klock Werks shield, Monotubes up front, lots of blacked out chrome parts, and the list goes on.......

No fair showing how great it looks and not giving details! Is it tape or paint?

I have the same color... that looks Kickass.

Sorry for the teaser! My buddy and I have the same bike. He bought his new so he has no excuse for the brown - I bought mine used at a low price so that's my excuse. Regardless, the brown was driving us both crazy.

So he worked with a graphics/sign company to come up with matte back overlays made from vinyl tape. Right now we have the fender and the faring done.

I saw his and it actually looked good - I don't think any other color of vinyl would have worked as well the matte but this reminds me of the muscle car hoods with the matte black inserts. I am going to work with the guy to do the tank, side panels and bags.

This is my stop gap until I ultimately do custom paint to replace the brown stripe!

I would definitely be interested. Have same color scheme and have hated the brown since day 1. Appreciate you showing us the end result.
