fender racing stripes

A little spur of the moment project I worked on last night.
I've had these triple racing stripe graphics hanging around for awhile and last night I got to thinking "hmmm, where would these look good".
They are automotive grade vinyl, I don't know how long they will stay put but if they come off I think I'll paint the stripes back on because I like the look. The compound curve wasn't easy to deal with, and it's not perfect but I think it turned out OK.

I thought of doing an offset red stripe one fat and one skinny on the fender and tank, but then didn't after looking at how I would have to do that on the tanks compound curves.

The stripes look good but when added does the bike become a Kawasaki Truxton.

I had a silver Bandit, and added a stripe down the fenders and tank - 2" blue w/ narrow orange accent down each side.

Reminds me of when I was bored and just laid out some green duct tape on the Mean Streak.




Yes I am a Team Green fan. And no, I never went through with it. Just did it for a laugh.

May be taking this a little off topic, but by the look of debauch's picture...... ... it appears your seat is missing the passenger seat. Did you do this yourself, is it a kit, or just trick photography?
