    Looking for pics of Black VFR with Orange Accents

    Good morning.  An owner posted pics of his bike that had orange accents against a black paint job.  I am now unsure if it was here or on Facebook.  I think he also had his panniers painted black.  Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone has those pics bookmarked or if the owner could repost.  I hope everyone is staying healthy.

    Thanks Ray.  Really appreciated!  I posted it on Facebook also.  Someone responded indicating they were looking for them also.  I'll repost them there if you do not mind.

    Let them come to here, i don't like Facebook :110:
    This is my bike...




    And some from during the paintjob witch i did myself.










    And for off-road i got the black panier drybags but for on-road i have aluminium paniers.


    I would like them black also but the problem is that every scratch will be very visible and even on road going vacations i mostly end up off-road from time to time.

    I really like the way that looks.  Thank you very much for taking the time to post the pictures.  I think you did a really good job on it.  So was your finish already matte or did you spray over with a matte coat?

    The black is okay.  But, I'd like to add something to it.  This might do the trick.  I was hoping it was vinyl just for ease and not having to commit.  Spray gun or airbrush?  I am good at both.

    Thanks.
    I used a small paintgun and finished it with a mat clearcoat.

    Damn, nicely done Ray  I never noticed the orange when you showed me the Lomo bags lol! I take it you're the man I should call for a paint job :015:

    I use stickers as a cheap way to pimp the 'boring' black  :001:

    Thanks. The taping was almost more work than the painting.
    For me it was also cheap because the boss paid for the orange and i got the matte clear coat via our paint supplier  :164:
    But i have to let you down. The paint booth is mostly in use and i don't feel comfortable doing stuff like this for others. If i mess up my own stuff it's annoying but i can deal with it how i feel necessary.
    But my bikes never stay standard. This is my previous bike, also my own design and axecution.
