MALWOULDWASTEHAN


Alright everyone, I've come here by happy accident to find folks who are much more knowledgeable about theme ideas for a few themed ideas to add to my bike while I'm painting it.

Here's the quick low down. I'm currently removing and filling dents for the gas tank of my 1995 Honda Shadow VLX. At this point the paints have been acquired to two tone the bike. The top half will be white and the bottom tone black. (If you google "black and white honda shadow" and look in images you get a basic idea. The bike is in pieces right now or I'd post images for ya'll to look at.)

As I plan on having this bike for some time I want some cool firefly bits to add to it. I've got the serenity backgrounder reference pack (I think that's what its called) with various symbols and fonts that are used on the show. But I'd like some ideas as to what to add to the bike. I have access to dark red, black, grey, and white monogram paints so I can put stuff on by hand and was very much considering putting some favorite quotes on the tank and a cool symbol or two there and on the fender.

So long story shorts I would like to know some of your favorites (if its possible to choose) and where you think they would look good on the bike. I've got 2 weeks to figure out what I'm doing so lets hop on it. I realize this may be on the wrong forum but I'm not much of a forum user so I hope you'll forgive me for my ignorance.

Thanks in advance.

... fully loaded, safety off...


Make sure you get a port compression coil, that's a must.
Seriously, sounds like a great project.

"Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down", one of the few things from the BDM I like. You could stencil Firefly or Serenity on it.

the movie is not the Series. Only the facts have been changed, to irritate the innocent; the names of the actors and characters remain the same

One of the many mailing lists I’m signed up for is Buell Motorcycles, and recently they’ve been telling me about a new bike they have, and a custom paint contest they’ve been having for it. Well, yesterday I got an email with the top 10 contest entries so I go and take a look… And this one at first reminded me of some video game textures, but on closer inspection I realized it was bits and pieces of Serenity. Needless to say, it got my vote.

I always liked the Serenity logo Inara painted on the ship. That would look cool on anything, if not terribly original.

Shiny, in a flat cammo way.

Like FF, Buell is DOA.

Obama gave Harley $300-million to export its factory to India and kill the Buell brand.

If only Firefly could make a comeback like Buell has.

Eric Buell passed along a personal message: "PirateNews is not News."

Buell Motorcycle Company was founded in 1983 by ex-Harley-Davidson engineer Erik Buell. Harley-Davidson acquired 49% of Buell in 1993, and owned 100% by 2003. On October 15, 2009, Harley-Davidson announced the discontinuation of Buell. The very next month, Eric Buell and Harley-Davidson announced the launch of Erik Buell Racing, an independent company run by Erik Buell which produced race-only versions of the Buell 1125R production model, under license from Harley-Davidson.

Yesterday, Eric Buell Racing was still making cycles. They are expanding. GE Capital Supports Ramp Up of Erik Buell Racing LLC December 7, 2012 www.genewscenter.com/Press-Releases/GE-Capital-Supports-Ramp-Up-of-Eri
