Help me paint my BMW R1150 GS

Hi Team I have a BMW R1150 GS That came to me as a accident damaged bike. The tank is off being repaired and will need new paint. So do I do a cheap easy job in stealth black? Or maybe Dakar White with some cool Tri Colour Dakar Stripes similar to the Unit Garage version. I think they need to go in the other direction.? Obviously in real life I'll get some one with skill and an artistic eye for the final job

If any one can send me the Paint codes for the White and the Tri Colour Stripes that would be great. Cheers

Since changing out the stupid logo sticker for an adventure style one, I've been much happier with the mandarin color though.

lol...thanks Jim, no offence taken. No it is not my bike, it is a reproduction of the Gauloises Dakar bikes BMW used to run, not 1150's obviously.... Actually my favorite color scheme is the white 2006 SE Adventure model!!!

Isn't it a great world where we can express our opinions and not get upset?

BTW, the best looking GS to me is this one:



Jim

PS: To the OP, I like your idea!
