Joes always swamped making us all happy, he has pictures of a unit he did with the lowers 2 tone, I like it but not sold.   Since it’s not my bike I don’t want to post the full build, but here are the lowers.

The solid would look fine but that two tone that Joe did sure looks sweet... :2vrolijk_21:

Good luck with your decision and please post some pictures once your project is complete.

I'd go with the solid of the darker color.

X2, I think it will blend in better with the fender and bottom of the bike.

x3  I think it will look best in the solid colour as well.

Good luck with making the right decision for you.

Yes, Joe Z always knows best (cast my vote for 2-tone...even more so with a custom 19/21” fender)

Would love to do a 21” wrapped fender and have Joe make it special and then do something with the lowers.  But the wife keeps saying do you ever want to retire.  LOL.

Hopefully if the guy is a forum member they don’t get upset me posting this pic.  This is why I’m torn, love the extra coloring, but still keep looking at the lines

When every piece on bike has the 2 tone paint I would do 2 tone on the lowers. I think it makes it look more custom.
I have thought about sending my lowers out for 2 tone to match the rest if my bike

Its going to look good either way

I would think that the solid gray would cost quite a bit less and work really well. Both look good, question is, which do you like best??

when i got mine done, the solid would have cost less than the 3 tone.  but with such a small piece, it really wasn't that much to worry about where it made one made much more sense.  the 3 tone would have cost $300 more to paint.

IMO the MoCo cheapened out on the front fender... all the other sheet metal (other than the lowers which I'm understanding from this post were done after) all include the orange (or whatever that lighter color is)... the front fender should have had some of the orange on it too.

Well damn, that does look good but I see what you mean about the extra lines. We need Cam to photoshop those a solid color and then repost it so we can see them side by side.

mrambo4 that RG looks good with the 2 tone to me because it makes up for the 1 tone fender. I agree every paint scheme has it's own features. Some may look good 2 tone some not. I have tossed the idea of putting some color on my lowers.
