    I have some tweaking to do when I get home tomorrow night... but I wanted to give everyone a sneak peak and get your feed back.

    After the tweaks to the design I'll send if off to be converted into a file for the machine to sew out and actually see what the end result looks like.

    ... get rid of the color markings. Sometimes simpler is better. Now if you want to add some color, do so to the bike tins... and color match the words

    I'm going to have to agree with Butch on that. Looks good though.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "color markings".

    I think they would look better white, and then add color to the bike. :2cents:

    Agreed...the pinstriping is too busy and draws the eye away from the message graphics. Maybe try something very subtle.

    I like the pinstripes with the color, but I’m a pinstripe fan. The anniversary k9’s had pinstripes, always thought they looked good

    I like to see the bike with some color. And tone down the pin stripe a bit. So the bike stands out more.

    I think it looks great as is. I love the old school Von Dutch style pinstripe.
