    Purple isn't all that bad IMO.

    but its getting rained on!! The girl should atleast have her jacket off covering the rear of the bike. And i hope she uses her Bandana to whipe off the excess water!

    Purple isn't so bad. My buddy rides an '01 WG that is purple. He runs a grape fuel additive and when people ask why his bike smells like grapes he tells them the paint must be bleeding off into the fuel!

    How about some Barney type additions???? (I would suggest some, but with no kids, I never had to watch the show).......Or, the grape ape? Just kidding, I saw a purple deuce in a local shop recently and it didn't look all that bad. But seriously, ghost flames would look sharp. Or, if you live some where that has winter, (didn't look earlier), maybe look into some type of custom paint. Good luck, I will add that the deuce just looks good regardless. :s

    I dont think purple looks bad at all but you might consider placing an add on craigslist or any other site you might be able to find a swap
