well im already thinking of what im going to do as a winter project. I have a 04 R6 and i love the look of white bikes. now i was thinking what is going to be my accent...and i have never seen a white and gold bike, and i think it looks sick on WRXs. So what i want to do is paint the whole bike white and get the rims, levers, and maybe rearsets powdercoated gold.



My question is can someone photoshop the bike all white and change the rims gold? or as close to it as you can? that would be awesome...this project is gona be awesome. im uber pumped :nocontrol

here is a template you can use

the whole bike with rims and exhaust or just the pain, if it just the paint about $200 which includes the paint,clear,the gold flakes and the chemicals to mix it together, and i gave my brother a few bucks for the paint, we hook each other up so we repay each other that way.

Hey do you have a better picture of the R6 where the fairings aren't faded to black? Hard to replace the color how it is right now.

Yea that will work, I'll post something later tonight, won't be perfect but it should give you a great idea of what she should look like. I was actually thinking of changing my soon to be R6 color to white if I'm not happy with the current color. White bikes are sick.

Golds really nice. But if you get some black in there that could be another option. Black rim White stripe. It looks sick i can tell. I also am planning to get painted in the future. I definitely want white in it. But i dont know what the other color would be yet. =] good luck
