I often look at my bike (Red) and wonder what I would paint it if I had a blank slate. Of all of the street bikes I have owned (18 before my 1098) NONE of them were red. I really don't like red but I figured it was a Ducati so it had to be red. I'm sure I would go with a two tone Blue and possibly pearl white mixed in there. Blue has always been my favorite color so it would have to be that. Nothing to splashy because that just doesn't say Ducati to me. Give me a blank 1098 pallet on a computer and the graphics program and colors with it and I would come up with something cool. I have a lady friend that is a graphics engineer and she would DEFINITELY get called in on this project.

DAMN, now you have got me thinking about painting my bike.

Maybe you could get some ideas from the Sedici guys, they have the ghost flames happening.

No flames for this guy. Not on my Ducati anyway. On a 1957 Chevy maybe but not a Ducati. I have been REALLY thinking about this since this thread started and I think I would do the frame in pearl white, then a pretty bright blue in probably two tones with some additional pearl white strips between the two colors of blue.

Like I said, I'd have to experiment with pictures of the bike with the ability to fill in color where ever I wanted it. I have to be REAL convinced of the way it looked BEFORE I ever got it painted.

How much do you think it would cost to take a RED 1098 and paint it a different color? I mean you would have to break it all down, paint and then put it back together again. $5000? $6000???? More than I have, that's all I know.

Yep photoshopped - if you look real hard you'll see the 3rd cow from the left is actually a bull. The NOS bottle is real though.
