Default Post awesome racecar liveries ITT

I'm thinking about buying a China-bike frame for $600 because I simply don't believe a carbon frame is really worth $2500-4000. If so, I think I'm going to paint it an awesome racecar livery like this one:

Martini and Gulf themes are not appreciated here because they are too played out.

Thanks for the help.

And then this, which started the idea. Its feminine, elegant, and can be done will with silver scalloped forks and stays, maybe silver on the top tube.

I was also thinking about "Sixty Six" in the XM script on the downtube.

Your poverty bike is not worthy of that Bimmer paint job. And yes, I did just properly pronounce the "i" as a short vowel sound. "Beemers" are motorcycles. I also always correct anyone who pronounces "Porsche" as a single syllable. Always.

More appropriate for Trubo:

HKS might be cool, Jim Clark ARX is winning right now though.

The black MX6 i'm building right now, "Home School Prom Queen" is getting the HKS livery. Because it's black, and GD chassis MX6s look close enough to an R32 that it'll at least garner some pretty hilarious double takes.

I've always felt passionately about "bimmer" pronunciation but never been enough of a douche to comment about it online.

It's really interesting as someone who's owned three in the past, I've never met anyone in person who cared. Outside of the flat-brim, Monster energy drink, DC Shoes crowd.

In fact, all the BMW guys use chassis codes to refer to the cars, not "Bimmer/Beemer"
