    Thank everyone for the respectful honest opinion. I spent last evening looking at paint jobs. I may have to go with a darker ghost flame, to break it up.

    That's true although you don't see much of a Harley frame. Usually just the down tubes and it's covered with a bunch of stuff

    I agree it looks good! but ya only see a little of the down tube. Swingarm blends in with the black rims and powder coat on engine. On the chopper you see more frame. JMO

    I'm picturing your hot red paint job with black frame and I think your bike looks much better with the red frame you have.

    I think if the chopper was blacked out engine and rims then a black frame and red paint would look cool.


    Plus I'm not painting my bike so I rather let Shannon paint his bike the color I would want! Hahaha

    I was going to say, I sure hope that's not your Dog. But as you can see, the black frame isn't that bad.

    Here's a side view. You really don't see much of the frame. I'm thinking the black will break it up more.
