Pinstriping design Thoughts

Thinking of pinstriping this on my tank any thoughts. Really looking to break up the green a little bit.

I think that would be awesome to start on the fairing and bring the stripes back to the rest of the bike. Cool Shark though!

If it were me I would go with mat black & silver 1/8" pinstripes and call it done. But that's me. I like the color or your sled and because you have so much black already, I think black & silver would look killer on your bike. Just my opinion.

I will definitely go with black and white or silver striping. Not sure yet. Just tossing around ideas at this point. But think I do need something.

Black for sure and silver or dark gray IMO would look killer with your paint. Maybe you do vinyl pinstripes to see how the colors work out. If you like it keep it. If you don't just pull the tape and find another color that works for you.

That's really a cool idea. I'd thought of a comical looking shark with a pool queue on the front fairing of mine.

The red pinstripes on my bike is 1/8" red automotive vinyl tape and it looks great and is wearing well. The tape cost me $ 6.99 from Pep Boys and a little bit of my time to do the mod. Everyone that has seen it thinks it's been painted. When I tell them it's automotive vinyl tape they all say, man great idea and it looks great. if it works for cars it works for bikes as well. Just a thought.

My bike now has carbon fiber stripping but here is a picture of what the red looked like before my update.

That design would look killer! But don't stop at the tank. Cary the lines down to the bags. Maybe even up to the fairing. Not crazy over board just keep it simple. Black and silver would look nice. One line thinner than the other. Even only black would look good.

Great looking ride by the way and that colour is great. Nice job.

I suggest that you find a someone that does pinstriping. He can take your idea & do a trial run to see if you like it, if not he'll just wipe it off & try something different. He'll be able to do different colors also. Good luck.
