New color for the shark :)

Hi All,

Here is my newly modded 2012 RGU
All colors where done in 3M 1080 vinyl. So yes, it can be done!
It was a pain in the a$$ but I am very pleased with the result!
Went with metallic black and fiery orange with a silver pinstripe.

Also added the quick release Tour Pak hardware and a StreetGlide rear fender extension.

Here are the before and after pics

Cheers!

Were you able to get it on the first attempt? Heat gun and lots of patientce? Looks great.

Thanks! I have to admit it was a steep learning curve... Used twice what I was planning on.. But heat gun and a LOT of patience did the trick... I also used about 2 roll of knifeless tape. Great stuff to make the graphics! Plus no chances of cutting into the clear of paint underneath . On the plus side the whole bike is protected from rock chips

High Five! That looks really nice! Great colors and design. Looks like a totally different bike. How does the wind screen mod work?
