I have a CBR600F4 that I've repainted. I laid it down a year ago and re-painted the bike in Dodge Viper Red. The tank was undamaged so I didn't paint it then, but now it bugs me. Here's a pic of the bike before my repaint (not my actual bike):


I stripped the stickers from the fairings and painted them so now they are now solid red. The front and tail fairings are also Viper red. The tank looks out of place because it still has those black "wingtips" and Honda logos on it. I plan to remove those and basecoat the tank with the Viper red and put a design on the tank to give it a special look. A local shop is going to do the clearcoat and probably the design too since I'm terrible with clearcoat. So what do you think I should put on my tank? And no, I will not paint a little AR-15 on it.

Abomination!!

I'm really thinking about putting a barbed wire design around the gas cap. I think that would look kinda neat. It's a matter of what to put on the sides. I also want to get a small japanese character for "luck" stenciled somewhere on it. When I laid it down I lucked out that I did not do any major damage to myself. It will serve as a reminder not to do stupid things again. MJD

Why not a little design of an AR on it? I actually think it's a good idea. Do you have anyother serious interests other than guns, maybe if you're a hunter you could paint a deer on it or something if the AR isn't your thing.

This rendition was done with Paint program, so excuse the coarseness .

Thanks for the ideas folks. I really just want something on the tank. I will probably put a stylized "HONDA" back on there just so people know what it is. The reason I do not want a little AR on there is because I may have to sell the bike one day. I might be excluding potential buyers if they're not into that kind of thing. See where I'm coming from?

Gotcha.

A flag might be a good idea.
