My 77 RS had been resprayed w/ a dark blue Chrysler/Dodge color when i got it and looked quite good.



the coat was mostly good, but in a cool way the re-spray flaked off in places revealing the original '77 silver/blue and hand painted Berlin pinstripes

I do prefer black frames on BMW bikes. If/when i get a 12GS i'll powdercoat the rear subframe black
I was going to vote for black with white pinstripes until I saw this solid black beauty....hmmm, pretty nice!
