Bike is in pieces at the paint shop. What is your favorite paint scheme? Post pics.

I'd love to see some options on what guys have come up with when doing a full transformation on these beauties. Brutale specific. My deadline is the Indy Moto GP to be shown at the Italian bike show the Friday before the race.

Search alktrax's posts...he is a design wizard in Europe with some nifty paint jobs. Personally...I like my stock 910R white paint scheme.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

There's not that much to paint on a Brutale, just send the parts to Alktrax.

Yeah, have seen his. I like most but this design is much more complex. Rims, fenders, tank, tail, windscreen, every piece is getting some love, even oil cooler cover. It is still a lot of parts and no way I can ship every part over seas. My painter is 7 mi away.

My suggestion, for what it is worth, is try and keep the project in perspective. You are on the show bike circuit. As such you are going to be surrounded by bikes that have been over painted, over chromed, over everything(ed).

It is easy to lose sight of the fact that the beauty of the Brutale is its simplicity. Everything flows, everything fits, nothing stands out. The entire bike is one subtle but powerful visual statement. You go fucking with painting the rims, radiator, seat and whatever else you're going to loose that.

Don't confuse love with sodomy.

That's my 2 cents. (Sorry to be blunt. I just read one of Noel's posts.)

You will be pleased, rims are just getting the red line like the CC, and the paint scheme is so subtle, you'll have to be 2 feet away to see the detail, no chrome for this lady, let's just say it is heavily influenced by a Tamburini creation, and who better to know how to make a bike's lines flow? I have stressed simple, clean, aggressive, subtle, flow. and visit every few days to observe progress.

Well, it sounds nice Jason. I was afraid you had gone over the edge and it was going to look like a Harley or Hyabusa.

tamburini is not the most subtle one

CC is difficult on a brutale
