    I put barbed wire and bullet holes on this tank when the Nightster had stock bars because it reminded me of The Great Escape bike. It isn,t the same now so I am looking for some new ideas.

    Nice job on the barb wire.If youre going to change it, you need to keep some black..it is a "nightster".I could see a deep purple to black fade happening. Some true fire flames subtly done?Whatever you do, paint the air cleaner cover to match, that will add something.
    You asked for ideas, these are mine.Looks nice as it is.

    Yes, I paint occasionaly for friends.When there are no bikes to paint we find something else.Had nothing going on a couple winters ago so we painted my buddies RV for the Patriots games.
    Good luck with the scoot, there are some great airbrushing forums if you look.

    Looks good Pete, how about raising the front of the gas tank.

    Nice job on the barbed wire. It's nice to see more examples of how much the appearence can change on a bike with such small details.
    Lower the rear of the bike with a nice set of black Progressive 412's shocks would make that bike sit beautiful.
