Over the last few months I have been looking searching the web for images of EX500s/gpz500/500r that have custom work (as I am in the process of painting my bike). In all honesty, it has been a bit of a task as I have noticed that not toooo many people out there do it. Not only that but most of the paint work I have seen tends to be just one flat color and nothing else.

Unless I have missed some long forgotten topic on this subject while using my search skills, I thought I would make a new post and dedicate it to bikes with custom paint work. :)

Please contribute if you can. Please post up photos of detailed paint work or new paint work with solid colors!

Here are a few that I found to get the topic going...

The green black and white one in the first post is pretty sweet. I might do mine in a gulf color scheme. Burnt orange and baby blue. Or just spray it a neutral color. Or just ride it til the crank snaps.

I agree about the green/white/black bike from the first set. Out of all of the ones that I have found/seen so far that one is my favorite.

The burnt orange and baby blue might look cool for sure if you decide to do it!

I didn't do mine one color. ;)
Looks nice! Digging the purple.

I did mine one color :eek: Shame on me. ::)
Single colors are fine as well I was really just trying to say that I see more of that than anything else.

BTW... YOUR bike is beyond awesome with its single color chrome goodness. ;)

Where did you find the pic of that camo wrapped one??? I have seriously been considering doing mine in that!
I wish I could remember. Truth is I have been on so many sites and google searches for custom paint jobs that I could not tell you where it came from lol. It is pretty cool though/different for sure!
