Fuel Tank Paint Scheme

If you could/had to repaint/vinyl your fuel tank, what color scheme would you go for?

I attempted to vinyl wrap my tank in gloss black but the curves proved too much for a rookie like me. Now I'm just pondering on different color schemes for a 3 piece wrap. It has the lines for it. I just don't know what colors I would do (aside from a 3 piece solid one color wrap).

Hey Kevin,

I would either go with black and red, or leave it like it is black not mate, with 2 stripes of leather one on each side.

New to motorcycles, so far Im loving it

Those would look sick as the bike look is classic as is sporty I guess Im not sure im saying this right but the bike has a mixed look and scheme of paint would look so cool.

I agree. My plan is to put vinyl white stripes down the middle to match up to my Bell Qualifier:

I'm actually interested in getting some pinstripes on the bike. Think that would look awesome.

I want to go for a slight blue accent color. Maybe the flat spots on the side of the tank blue with the rest of the tank and fenders matte black? I would probably paint the calipers a matching blue as well. I resprayed my rear fender with plastidip yesterday and although it looks good, it's kinda hard to wipe since it's rubber. I wrapped it in vinyl but I didn't do a good job because once it was out in the sun, the edges started pulling back.
