Opinions on color scheme

I'm not exactly sure what the red part is called (not the sub frame) but I kind of want opinions on painting this color scheme. It's pretty much a rip off of the danny eslick edition but with less red.

It's whatever! Aaaah! See what I did there? All joking aside, I think it looks good. I had an idead of extending forward from where the swingarm is all the way to the belly and then color matching the tail also.

I like it, ties in with the red subframe very nicely!

Were it me I'd paint the wheels rather than paint the fairings. Yeah they'll need to be cleaned more often, but that's the common price for extra bling.

I was actually thinking of painting the wheels gold to match with the forks. Photoshop experts please feel free to throw in your own ideas or post them.

Just to throw something in; painting/powdercoating to match anodizing never produces the same effect; they will never match.

You also maybe better trying to wrap the fairings to produce the same matteish color of the subframe; painting will yield a different look unless you manage to paint a matteish red.

I like it! I've got a similar scheme on my track bike, with the red stripe across the entire bike...
