Skunk paint job

I have a Road King that I would like to turn into a RG. Always liked the black and white skunk paint job. I think this paint job would even look good without the RG fairing.

What do you guys think?



Here's a picture of my bike...

It would look good, but could be a little costly if you want the OEM paint and scheme, especially if you have the same vendor do the work.

I think it would look good. I would not buy the harley paint tho. Color match it as close as you can and go with it, know else would know the difference.

+1. Has always been one of my favorite CVO paint schemes.

Thought I would bring this up again, since I am not going to go with the RG fairing - a little too much work for me this year. Doing the carburetor conversion and some geared cams instead.

However, I am thinking of using that skunk paint scheme with a batwing fairing. I'm thinking the fairing will be solid black. What y'all think?

To close to a cop bike for me unless you wide white stripe bags, maybe white edge the bat-wing, little tape and spray

I love the look of the skunk and would consider the purchase of one at the right price point. That being said I think your road king looks great and that you would not be happy with the results. Before you go this route get someone handy with a mask program to set up you RK with this paint scheme. Not all colour schemes look good on all bikes and your king looks good right now. I would hate to see you drop all that coin on a replica paint scheme that may not give you the expected results you are looking for. Good luck with whatever direction you take.
