tying it together - ironstone

Slowly moving the bike into the bronze accent direction. Attempting to tie together the ironstone, the natural "gold-ing" of the pipes, and the brown leather accents I'm planning to add. Spent sometime over the holidays in my garage smoking cigars, painting, cleaning, and listening to the Rolling Stones.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.

The brown will work well with that. Are you going to keep the fenders black?

I've thought about painting the fenders ironstone. I'm on the fence though, as it might be a little much. I like how the black fenders mesh with the tires, giving it a solid, "heavy" visual. I don't recall seeing a pic of anyone doing this yet. It would be nice to see how it turned out.

Hello Davidrb,

my bike is not Ironstone coloured, but to give you some impressions about painted fenders
I can show you a pic of mine, maybe it will help you...

Love where you’re going with this. I think the Ironstone has a hint of brown/bronze to it so it should look great when done. But, that said, I think it has to be the right tone as it’s a tricky color. I wasn’t 100% satisfied with the match of the brown Statement seat, despite the leather and the profile being really nice. Changed to a distressed/vintage looking gray/black. If I recall, you’re doing a reddish leather seat which should look awesome. The Ironstone fenders might be terrific as it would minimize the color changes from front to back and let the accessories stand out. Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out.

Yeah, the Bike Brothers work shop is located 20 minutes away from my home only,
so I visit them very often for some coffee and small talk

Have you considered an ironstone stripe or racing stripe down the Centre of the fenders? That may work.
Or painting the fenders in the ironstone or doing a black highlight stripe.
I love the tank couloir and for me as it stands now the solid black fenders are a bit to much of a contrast. Can't wait to see how it ends up. Gonna look fantastic I'm sure.
