Vinyl wrapped the forks

The gold colouring on the ZX-10R forks I installed in the spring has been bothering me from day one, so I decided to do something about it last night. I had bought some semi-gloss black vinyl wrap and...... behold!

Pretty sweet combined with the black stanchions.

Goes very well with the buled/black/ dark theme of the bike

Now maybe all the whispering and bitching about the color clash will quiet down

Any reason to show 'er off, hey? Haha
Just simply a stunning bike.

How hard was it to wrap those? Did you choose wrapping them over paint, because you could wrap them while still on the bike?

Bingo, plus it's easier to undo if it didn`t work out. The bottom part went pretty well but the top (directly under the upper triples) won`t be making the cover of any magazines that`s for sure, lol Oh well......

That's a beautiful SuperHawk. I like the blue with red wheels.

That looks great. Is the wrap like adhesive plastic that you then heat to shrink?

Red wheels look good but dont think they would work on a red bike.
