When I saw the first set of tank pictures - wow very unusual, with a nifty artwork to complete the theme of "wet girl". Then looking through all the second set of pictures then the penny drops as to just how much thought and development went into the design and implementation of the finished product.

The work and detail shown in your finished bike is impressive, well done.

Really nice. Is that a vinyl transfer of the "psychedelic" pattern on the tank sides?

If so, it is difficult to get them to lay flat on curved surfaces. Very nice job!

the water effect was made in Water Transfer (dip-printing) a special technique suitable for any curved or flat surface.

Whow that looks real nice. I like the way the gauges came out. The tank job is just fantastic!

Hi I'm glad you like my girl... However I don't do this as a job, and the final work you see has taken me away several months of free time, I couldn't do another one.

if it can help you I can give you the girl's profile files, the 3D drawings of the gauges holder, and any other information you need.
