I decided to try and hand pinstripe some flames to get an idea of how they would look. So be easy on me considering this was with my hands lol. Im planning on getting a set made but i would like to get some opinions. Sorry the camera phone was the best i had. Thanks

hey man thats pretty good being done by hand. much better than i could do. all i would have to say is throw some color in there. and is it just me or does the green of your bike change shades from diffrent angles

i think the black out line is nice... maybe make the outline thicker in different areas to give it texture....

I thought you did a great job. What is nice as well is that with pinstripe you can remove/relocate as you wish. You might would even want to try some charcoal or other colors to add shadow depth.

Anyway, I'm impressed with your tape application skills.

i like the flame in the tail,
(maybe you need a small in the tank)
and in my opinion, less flames on fairing

:thumbsup: You did a good job, especially by hand. Not really into flames though..little played out IMO. It's your bike -- and it is good work.

It looks pretty cool, but I voted no flames "personal opinion" I like the plain Jane green on black. You do nice work though for just tooling around

Looks really good, and the fact that you did it by hand at least gives you some bragging rights

Looks good. With a little contrast in thickness and shading it would look better. But either way good job. But i voted no flames.
