Same guy:). Could turn out nice, but what if Vettel switches to ferrari next season?:). Still, good for you, going all in on a unique build!

So it must be asked, again: are you sponsored by RedBull or is RedBull paying you in anyway to advertise for them?

To answer some of your questions, no I am not sponsored or have any affiliation with Red Bull. The idea behind the design was to take an artists interpretation of Vettel's ever changing helmet designs and incorporate some of my favorite design characteristics into a design that would work on the bike. Of course I am a huge F1 fan with Red Bull Racing being my favorite team. Just because I am putting a red bull logo on the bike doesn't have to mean I am sponsored or trying to be a wanna be sponsor. I just want to take the basic helmet design and incorporate this onto the frame. This by itself is not easy, taking a design from a round sphere and putting it onto a bike frame is quite difficult. I want the scallops on the frame to flow with the shapes of the frame, scallop angles to align with the frame angles and color segments in the quadrants, give the illusion of speed and movement and also symbolize the way they are used on the helmet dividing the frame into 4 quadrants, etc.

Also the illustration I posted of the frame is just showing the basic scallops and color segments in the quadrants. Those are not the final colors I will be using.

So from what you guys have seen so far, what colors would you like to see on the bike? Pick a main color and maybe an accent color. I already have the colors nailed down but would like to hear what others think?
