Custom Paint Jobs - what's your favourite?
 
With reference to XT Girl's search for the owner of the BMW with the Ewan and Charlie custom paint job, I was about to wax lyrical about a custom paint job I'd once seen on that thread, but thought I'd start a new thread as I didn't want it to get off topic.

The best one I ever saw was on a lorry. The entire cast of 'Eastenders' rendered in a symphony of blue airbrushing. The whole gang were there, Grant, Pauline, Dot, whats-er-face who married Brian May, ooh...Anita Dobson! You can imagine the conversations at truck-stops the the length and breadth of the country. My suspicion is that most of 'em started "Why the f...!"

However, each to his own, I say. So what are the best you've seen? Cool ones are fine, but the more comedic the better. Given the preponderance of iron-brasiered, cougar taming princessess and bloody mawed lupines I've seen on bikes in the past, I expect some good answers!

Hi Peanutsdad, welcome to the HUBB and nice picture. With ref. to your quote, the RAF survival school's version goes:

"Red man builds small fire and keeps warm, white man builds big fire and keeps warm chopping wood."

Ride safe.

Lucky there are no Lions in Canada and if you,d done the same scheme in Orange and black on a Triumph or a KTM.

Due to applying the wrong primer (actually it was the applying of the primer that caused the problem) the red pannels melted (only a little bit) so its back to good old black and white these days.
