So here she is... I'd like to do some pin striping but not sure what colors I want yet or who is local enough!! I'd like to customize her in a way that makes her mine.. Any ideas would be great! Within reason since I'm going through a divorce. many of you will see me more out on rides too once things get finalized with my life!! Free spirit here I come again!

Looks killer awesome.

Suggestion - very cheap mod - addition by subtraction - remove the goofy reflectors (blow drier, plastic pry, then goo-gone)

I'd say stay away from pink or purple pinstripe, as they're a touch cliche'. Maybe pinstripe flames in blue to white gradient?


As for the divorce, if you need someone to listen, I have an ear to lend and I've been there myself.

I have a guy coming to Clarkston on Monday (from Traverscity) to stripe my Road Glide. This guy is really good and striped 2 otherbikes for me. Somewhat expensive but hiswork is the best. You’re welcome to join in.

another way to shave those reflectors is to use some simple fishing line and pressing against fork tube saw to and fro right down the side of the tube and there they go.

New bike and a divorce, match made.....best way to keep head clear. Personally i like pinstripe but what I hate is that it tends to fade or chip off after time if not clear coated after. Unless they have new materials out there. I'm also a fan of slier and gold leaf as well.

To see how a plain Pin Stripe would look, take different colors of thin ribbon and hold it against the bike. That way you have an idea before you pay. I ordered a black vehicle with a silver/gray pin stripe. It looked good in the book. I parked next to one with a red stripe, I hated mine ever since then. Wish I knew this trick back then. On a black bike, I like a royal blue pin stripe. Nice looking bike.

Those things are completely useless. They are very directional, and by the time they are seen, its too late, if it comes down to the reflectors being the last thing that gets you noticed.

At night, I run accent lights that can be seen from all angles and from a reasonable distance.
