Thanks musashi! Yeah did the pin stripes by hand, but I cheated and used posca paint pens to do it

Isaac that looks cool either way, and I like the colors. I've seen another one bell makes in black and white that's pretty cool design. I'd be too worried leaving it on my bike when I park it out and about, some little bastard would nick it knowing my luck

Well it's finished. In room light the skulls only really show when reflected in the light, exactly what I wanted. Keeps it nice and subtle and the lucky 13 bold and not cluttered. Happy as a pig in shit!

Hey issac is that the 14 model bell?  They're meant to be lower profile than the last 500s which they're flicking  off cheap.
Nice colour scheme
Well done squid looks great.

Thanks fellas.

I haven't had a chance to pop down the shops, but there's such thing as a Matt or satin finish clear yeah? Need something over it to give it a bit or protection

Hey Squid maybe try the matt/satin clear on a very small area of yur lid.
These finishes are seen, they're not completely invisible. That'll alter the appearance somewhat.
Given yur efforts I'd hate to see it fully sprayed and it NOT be the finish you hope for.

Moff I dunno if mine is a 'model 14' there's no reference to it on the box. Just '500 custom'.
I reckon the retro 'bubble visor' suits the orange lid.
The black one is a half helmet with zip-off leather sides - I'm getting up quite a retro collection
