So I think I am done with the power mods, at least for now. It is time to make her look pretty bounce
I figured I will add some color to make her look not as boring and black. I will continue with pin-striping little by little and should have her all dressed up in red pretty soon. I also ordered a set of red accented mirrors, I just hope they are not a crap quality.

Cheers,
Mad

Now you've done it! You're really gonna make Razorback jealous.

As an unrelated comment, I always thought that given the right shading of black highlites, shadowing & painted rivets, a black S'Wing could suggest an attack helicopter. Say an Aussy Tiger, for example. Just say'n

To each his own, of course. But TASSELS? REALLY? TASSELS? Never even knew they made such a thing. Wow! I do love the pin striping though. That's cool. But hey, I'm bringing my bike "back to black" after my grandson laid it down and I'm buying the Tupperware part by part, payday by payday. OUCH!

Are you using pin striping tape? Paint? Are there any "suggested" patterns for such a thing? I would love to do that, but I'm not artsy-fartsy enough. I will say one thing though - remember this - just when you think it needs "one-more thing" - it's done. Stop there.

You mean like OCC did with the Comanche bike?

If you are going to have tassels and a horse tail, then you really need to add a set of these too...

It is a scooter, after-all. Why not a set of red tassels. I think they fit just right. I had tassels on all of my cruisers for the past 17 years, they were black however and did not make the bikes look like a toy though Basketball

The pinstripe is made by 3M and is what used on most of the cars that have those. I don't know if there are any patterns. I guess you can always use Google. I just do freehand and make sure it is straight.

Cheers,
Mad

Thank you, Dan, but I do not have a think for things sticking out of my back. I see a pattern here with you avatar thought :lol!:
But thanks for the suggestion :-)

Thank you, sir. But the tassels are enough for me. I am relatively confident with myself as a man, as you can see from my ride jocolor  and I don't see any need to prove a point or my manhood to the fellow riders/drivers on the road affraid

Mad

Check out this video of some Russians and their SWing. Looks exactly as you mentioned:
