    Custom Paint job on Futura (my photoshop)

    I was "shocked" by those graphics.....!

    They just "bolt" right out of the page.....

    Actually, I like the geometric patterns and how they hightlight lines in the bike. I personnaly like more subdued graphics so would probably blend the red and white as darker maroon and grey-ish. Overall, nice.

    Not sure it suits the Fut crowd. Looks more like the Japanese type bikes graphics. You did a good job with the Photoshop'ing. Looks pretty cool, just maybe for the younger crowd. OMG. . . I just turned into my dad. . .

    I also think your photoshop work is good. I don't like flashy graphics but thats just me. I even took off the RSTFutura decal by the front fairing.

    Nice! I think you did a great job aligning your graphics with the sharp lines of the Fut. I really like it!

    Personally I'd like to see the same design in flat red and grays on an ash black. Not sayin I'd want it but I'd like to see it!
