Bagger paint

After playing with the Vreeble, me and Rob weren't really happy with the results on the bike tins so we decided to go in another direction. I will leave the gold flakes panels as they are now and instead of painting the rest black (which is sooo 2011), I wanted to try brown. It's the new black, you know.
It's a BMW kolor called Marakesh Brown. It looks a chocolate brown until the light hits it and it turns to a karamel hue.

Instead of painting HD logos or using stickers, we ordered some metal emblems from W&W cycles. They fit the style of the paintwork very well. I plan to do off-white outlines on the panels, and I will match the kolor to that used on the emblems.
Unfortunately, the emblems are made for a much rounder tank, so they don't fit. The pointed ends are resting on the tank's surface and the middle is still 1-2 cms away.

I predict some grinding in the near future.
