More Paint OCD

I noticed this bike on eBay. The paint on the rear fender is very comparable to what I'm planning to do (similar sized strip on a similar sized fender).

Flathead45 has recommended painting the "Triumph" portion of my badges the same color as the pinstriping. I just can't say I'm a fan of that. It always strikes me as a little cartoonish. The fact that it always seems to be done in a fashion reminiscent the makeup on a Parkinson's inflicted show girl has no doubt tainted my opinion somewhat.

I like the fender stripe. I also agree that in the red color, the painted logo looks kinda gaudy. In your blue color, it wouldn't look so bad, but do as you see fit...!
