Custom Paint

Anybody have OR have seen a k1200gt with a custom paint job? I love my bike but want to personallize it a bit.

There are several custom paint options in this thread, this thread, and this thread.

Ken
Pacific NorthWet
'13 Dark Graphite Metallic K16GTLD, 24K miles and counting...
'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Be sure to check out Grif's Flying Tigers theme in the 2nd thread. It's my favorite. Last I heard, he had sold the bike to another rider.

Having a low side a year ago gave me the opportunity to get rid of that bland silver color.

There is another thread around from a guy in S America (I think) who did a warbird sort of paint to has as well. I didn't like it very much. The idea was good but execution was pretty flawed.

Thanks for the links guys. Although some of the paint jobs are improvements I still don't see anything that blows me away.

I want to make the bike look a little more sporty. Anybody ever seen one with blacked out wheels?
