Just received my parts from the painters

I decided to go w/ the Two-Tone after all. The base is "Gunmetal Grey" and the top is Pearl white w/ silver flaking and both colors are seperated w/ a deep red pinstripe. It looks absolutely amazing in the sunlight! I was going to wait for my Keiti Tank pad before taking some pics but it was a nice day today so I thought i'd snap some pics.

Thanks again for your guy's help in deciding the Color Scheme. Enjoy.

p.s. click to enlarge

Thanks, thats what I told the guy. I love the look of old Norton's and Triumph's and I wanted to do something similar. He was talking about painting it yellow/red/bright blue and I told him that I wanted a subtle look.

I dig the SM bards. They lower your stance quite a bit but not to terribly bad.

As for the fender, if you notice the two-tone color Scheme is subtle as a whole. Both the tank and the seat cowl or two tone, the front fender is painted to match the top coat while the side pieces next to the chrome air filter box housing is painted to match the bottom coat.

Bike looks sweet man, glad to see you finally got on a sport bike. Too bad it's not a Kawi, but a good bike nonetheless. Maybe we'll get stationed together again sometime and we can ride together.

Just noticed this. It was a nice day in HI and there are thunderstorm clouds looming in the background. Feels about the same here. Hey it's nice outside the clouds are at least 10 miles away, let's ride.

Anyway, I love the paint scheme. I did some research to the old school bikes you were referring to in your other thread. I think yours came out for the better. I like the white and the gray, and the seperating stripe seams them together mighty nice.
