so late next week my quest will be headed to the body shop

it is getting the center section of the wheels and my willwood calipers painted to match

it is also getting all the black trim done

my painter (good friend of mine) thinks this would be a good color for it

what do you guys think

Looks good so far Dude. I've been contemplating a motorcycle color for the blue I want as well. Does PPG make those colors, and can the be found at a regular "paint" shop? I've looked through many books but can't seem to find the blue I see on Ninjas and other bikes. Harley cobalt is nice.
