Paint job ideas!

I saw a previous thread with some good ideas. Feel free to give ideas but I'd love some pics! Post naked bikes (old or new, cafe especially). I'm open to all suggestion but my train of thought is going toward a stainless steel/matte nickel with black 3 tier checker down the center. Also DEEP metallic navy with said steel/nickel checker. Away we go!

British racing green with a white stripe down the center, then paint the gas cap white and paint a number on it... go with that old school cafe look

That's what i'd like to do with mine anyway

Thats very close to what I have planned for my poor wrecked 9er. Im definitely going with the British Racing Green, but Ive been waffling on the accent color and stripe pattern. I was thinking copper colored stripes/wheels/ etc...but white would be very striking!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Yeah that's one sweet job... but I got mine figured out and hope you'll love it as much as I will, assuming it turns out the way I want!
