Adding some colour to my M50

Discussion in 'Cruisers' at netrider.net.au started by OZChris, Jul 12, 2009.

  1. I have playing around with adding some stripes to my M50, just thought that I'd share.

    Is it too much for a cruiser? The second colour is actually red, but appears as orange on the black paintwork.

  2. I like the white. But go with what you want, just be aware that modding the paintwork can bring down the price of your bike since a lot of people will think you're trying to cover up a drop/damage or the like...

  3. I like the white as well.
    As their stickers you shouldn't be damageing the paint.
    Never happened on a MINI and whole cars were covered :)

    Looks great, I don't mind either to be honest.

  6. I like either, probably prefer the white if the red comes up orange (or is that just the photos?) High contrast is a good effect.

  7. Yeah the red comes up orange - I assume that it's because the black paint work is coming through the vinyl.

    Already getting people making Harley comments???

  10. I also think white looks best. Gives it a really classic and classy look.

    Ended up going silver (at least for now :) )

  12. I like it on the tank, still think I prefer the high contrast of the white on the tail.

    But who cares what I think? :grin:
