    Hi guys, I've got a black base with blue graphics coming up. Can' decide on what to do exactly. I can' get too crazy, as this is on our new coyote. So kind of a budget build.
    So my question I pose to you, what's' a good graphic scheme in blues that was popular (ie, sold well)?
    And....go!

    The whole tribal metal look with rivets and whatnot with a blue underlying real flame was always a huge seller.. I'm sure it still would be.. just give it a 2017 kick.. not my style but a big seller for sure.. good luck brother!

    Those are both too expensive and labor intensive.

    I was thinking something with the big dog logo. Maybe it needs a new design?

    Maybe something like this? I personally think this is as awesome as it gets. Not sure how popular it was though. But perhaps this would keep you within budget.

    I definitely like an all black bike. It's easy to do if something happens to it.
    That said I like the pin strips on the limited.

    That's a cool way to draft paint ideas. How did you do that? Or was it just an image you found online? Thanks.

    Both look great ! I'm kinda partial to the first pic with the "basket weave" look, but still think they both are sharp.
