I love my Titanium 05 1300c, but I think it just needs a little something more to make it "pop". I'm considering some gloss black accents. Have any of you fellow titanium X owners out there done a gloss black combo? I'm thinking of an old skool two tone where the top of the tank & fenders remain titanium with the sides gloss black and a titanium pin stripe just inside the black edge. I've sent the tins to Bryan of BDsCycles and he's also filling the tank seam.

Well, I've seen the preliminary pictures and he did a really nice job, incorporating a narrow gold band into the design :) Now I've just got to wait for Maryland to warm up a little so I can get the parts on the bike and I'll post some pictures.

I have been thinking of doing something to break up the monotony of all the titanium color on mine. I have added a fairing and soon my bags will be ready at the painter. I have also debaadged the bike, so I think something like a pinstripe or some chrome is in order. I never thought of a two-tone paint scheme with gloss black against the titanium--sounds like a good idea though. Let us know if you do it...

Oh, it's already done. I've seen BD's preliminary (pre-clear coat) photos. He will probably post pictures of the finished product on here or VTXOA, and I'll post pictures once I reassemble the bike.
