I am pretty sure I am going to do the tank and all the fairings in one color. The guy is going to use any paint I want from House of Kolor.

I am thinking of a super dark silver, almost a gunmetal type color. Or possibly a blue. Whatever I do, it is going to be heavily flecked and glossy.

I have seen pictures of custom paint jobs, but I don't want to do anything with graphics, just one, maybe two colors.

Any ideas or pics greatly appreciated

I have a friend that owns a body shop and 95% of the time uses HOK mostly candy colors. The only problem with custom paints (candies and pearls) is if you damage one part and have to replace a fairing the whole bike has to be repainted because you can never match the same color again.
Just something to think about.

mgraham224,

I guess you like dark colors, right? This is one of the member's bike, and I think this is one of the nicest "dark" color R1s I've seen so far... :yesnod Actually it's one of the nicest R1s I've seen.

All black color scheme

Here's one of the new r1's that I customized in photoshop. It's what i'd do if I decide to get one.

Hey Valerossi, is there any more pic's of the nice "dark" R1. 1 of the rear would be sexy :)
Sorry I don't have. It wasn't easy to find that picture too. I know they are somewhere in the forum, but too many pictures here, plus I forget the username of this member... :(

This bike was owned by an old school member by the name of SEM! I remember it because it was the best looking R1 at the time, IMO.
If I remember correctly, a car hit him from behind and the bike was totaled.
