Long ago I posted how my buddy was looking to do up his 05 1200r sporty with the Storz Perf. XR1200 parts. Well he FINALLY got the bulk of his parts. The main 2 components are the tank and seat/fender. In discussing a paint scheme w/ him, he wants to reproduce the standard black/orange/white HD "traditional" race colors. IMO he ought to do something "different". Utilize similar layout, but with a twist. Use black as primary color and use med. silver flake and a candy tangerine as secondarys. To me, I'd bet EVERY bike that gets done with this race style gets the SAME paint scheme...the HD race style. Not that you see a ton of these sportys done this way, i'm just suggesting straying away from the obvious in the paint dept. Any Opinions either way out there????

Hows about something along the lines of the 883R or the 1200S tank schema. Those look nice with the checker board patterns.

this is more what I was thinking

this was just subtle changes more black than orange....I saw a black & silver V-Rod that was built by Performance Machine (PM) as a demo and i REALLY liked the contrasts of the black & silver flake. I'd like him to try that but I don't think he's got the balls to do something too different

it does look cool

I can't believe that pic is a sporty. That bike looks great, I even like the paint.
The 1st post is the Storz Performance bike. The 2nd post is a basic rendering/modification to the 1st done w/ photoshop (not an actual paint job...yet). His bike does look cool, even with the tank in bare aluminum and the seat/fender in white gel coat. He doesn't have the pipes yet. We've just been discussing the paint scheme back & forth. Should be a pretty unique bike when it's done. I think he's using buell trees & upside down forks off something else. It will have race style 18" sun or excel rims, so far chrome or polished w/ polished stainless spokes. It's coming along....
