You need a bright color. White would look great on that paint. Or maybe yellow. Chrome? Silver? I think you get the point.

I'd go with a chrome / silver / grey type color... match the frame. Highlight the blue without getting too gaudy.

I vote white... It will tie the wheels in with the rest of the bike... There is enough silver throughout the engine, frame, and whatnot... If you really want to get tricky get grey/silver to match the frame and get the white too... Put the grey/silver decals down first, then overlap the white ones on top... Get the 3D effect... Be careful because if you don't do it just right it will look like trash... Non-ammonia Windex and lots patience are your friends...

In that case, I'd get whatever matches your wheels the best.

I just got done with the bondo work and i painted but it didnt turn out the best but i will have my guy touch it up in a while when i feal more comfortable. It seems to be taking a while because im still not comfortable with shifting and turning the most (probebly because i wiped out last time) But i have class this weekend and hopefully ill be more comfortable after the weekend. Oh yeah i got off task i painted but it didnt look so hot but when i feal good ill have my guy do it, put on most likely white decals, a new turn signal and windscreen, and ill be good

I hear yea man. I can patch with the best of'em but cant paint for crap unless I use many coats so it can be wet sanded away.
