  • New Fairing = New color, but which one?

    Need som help.

    Im about to buy new HammerIT fairing (unless something unexpected and expensive thing happens...)

    So, which colour should I go for?

    Today I have black metallic. But, Im thinking that If im to stay Black it will probbalby be plain non-metallic black this time.
    Metallic was the old owners color. Not mine...

    But, plain black is kind of.... booring...


    I have photoshoped 5 pictures to help you to imagine the bike.
    Its not my bike. I didn´t have any good side view of my own...

    Its a base, Some color on the tank wouldnt hurt. But hey, its late and im dead tired..

    BTW - My favourite TLP bike is SDTLR, so thats my taste. BUT I dont want my bike to be a copy of that magnificent bike. I like my toys to stand out of the crowd.
    I had an other mighty idé, but economics stopped that one. So it have to be a rather simple paint scheme.

    (Sorry if this one is in the wrong forum...)

              I really like the orange.. Any particular shade you're going for? You don't want it to look to much like a Halloween bike!
              I've got a huge penis, You've got a huge penis, even Tim over there, yup you guessed it, huge penis. Good, now that that's out of the way, let's go ride

                Nope, havent thought about shades yet. But, not to bright. It has to harmonise with the black, thats the only requirement I have on the colour.

                Probably going to put some black stripes on the fairing too, think it would look better. One colour scheme looks a bit cheap...

                BTW - The yellow on the picture is crap. Its the Original Tiller Yellow its gona be if I choose Yellow.

                  I like the blue, then orange, then black in that order. The yellow is kinda stock TLR looking, and there's enough slow yellow bikes out there.
                  The Green is wayyyyyy too Ninja. Go any color than that. If green, I'd go with more of a British Racing Green.

                    The Orange would be pretty cool. Blue would be my second choice if you did it a bit darker. The gree looks way to Kawisaki.

                      Blue and Black is my personal favorite. When I get done with my custom bodywork that's what I'm doing. Mostly black with blue and white accents. I'd want you to do something different, but mine's a TLS and doesn't look like anything else anyway, so you have my permission If you do it, I think the key will be some black graphics or a racing stripe or at least a number plate shaped section on the nose or black SUZUKI lettering or something to tie the accent color in with your existing black tail/tank.

                        Thanks for the kind words PL. Here's a new pic to mess with that is closer to your bike

                        If and when I repaint mine it will be primer grayish with airbrushed rivits and what-not, kinda like an old figher jet

                        So my vote says yellow, but my wallet says F-16 :dunno



                        Please for the love of all that is good and decent...do Not paint it blue

                            Why not Red? If you can do stripes an issue of Performance Bikes had a killer red/white/black Gsxr.. Would look great on Tiller...!

                            Sorry for the pic of a pic, too lazy to pull out the scanner...
