    The classic blue and orange, Gulf GT40 scheme. It would be different and keep in line with the sporting theme.

    How about something classic, maybe something by Edvard Munch. The Scream or something like that?

    this is an old paint scheme vw did years ago which always stood out from the crowd! alternatively i would say research into aprilia history and look at old racing schemes, maybe try giving one a slightly more modern twist.
    the only problem with paint schemes personal to you, ie your favourite band, film or racing team is that it narrows down the market when you look to sell. some people will love it, others wont touch it. when i was looking for my mille i found a really nice sprayed candy white one, only to then find that the tank, seat unit and belly pan had images from the film '300' etched on. they were sprayed fantastically well and it was genuine artwork, but i would never consider riding a bike around with a bunch of fellas wearing togas sprayed on.
    obviously the choice is yours and it depends if you ever plan on selling, be sure to keep us updated either way and photos in the future once its done!

    Hey guys i'm thinking of a pearl white with graphite grey bellypan with graphics on tank and rear in grey, the thing is i have seen a couple of cracking paint jobs on this site though you never want to copy.

    hi guys, thinking of going with the mille sp look, going to do a metalic black with the the silver detail. Maybe slightly boring but i like the smoother lines with the graphics etc. Anyway thinking once project complete going to sell get a 04 plate rsv factory.

    Hi russ, a retro paint job would be mint, I love the look of yours though i doubt if ma paint boy would get all the detail bang on if a went along same idea. What rear end do you have on your bike bud as it makes a big difference.

    Hello Mate

    That's the Jester rear end. Makes the bike look more modern and it a great riding position too. The paint job only cost me 800 and looks a lot better in the flesh.

    Alrighty
    Bud your bike is sick, checked out the jester dude his stuff his stuff looks quality. The rear end makes a huge diference it sorts the whole bike out. Ma only prob is just bought exhaust and obviously with this ill be f***** for a hanger.

    There's nothing stopping you putting a slot in the underside of the seat and have a hanger bolted to the subframe. The other option is to have a support off the heal plate.

    Don't be put off by hanger issues, there's always a way round it.
