Starting to play with some concepts and ideas for the next custom design. As some of you may know, I seem to gravitate towards the motorsports liveries. Here's a few ideas I have been sketching out and playing with on paper.....let me know what you think?

Gulf -

Martini -

First choice, Vettel, then Gulf. But Gulf is a bit BMC for me...

I had a feeling you'd pick one with the colorful stripes! I do think design would look cool in a matte navy :thumbup:

Haha I guess i'm that obvious lol. Gulf is nice too, but i'm a sold Martini fan lol. That would definitely be awsome in matte navy. Curious to see what you will pick.

honestly, imo - im super burnt out on gulf and martini liveries, i get that they're "classic" been theyve done to death at this point, goes for RBR too.

maybe a Lotus/John Player Special or Marlboro/McLaren/Senna tribute? or Jag/British Racing Green, Renault/Elf, Rothmans, Camel, Jagermeister, Palamat, Castrol ..... theres LOADS of really awesome liveries that get overlooked in favor of those that have been thoroughly rinsed.

I'd avoid the whole racing scene paint job in general...maybe think of something more original...

ah the good ol' pink pig. that certainly would be a unique paint job. probably not the easiest to adapt to the tubular structure of a bike frame tho

I thought of the pink pig before, but definitely more appropriate on the Shiv :)
