The small areas done in silver, and the two white locations are placed perfectly. It reminds me of the ancient Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud models of the early sixties that were sometimes two-toned at the factory. The overall balance of those three colors on Last ride's bike is just perfectly done! How they figured out just where to start and stop the color sections is something.... , perhaps like most everything, they experimented and made minor changes until they achieved the proportion and the balance. Super!
Came from Nonfixie. BF required I delete some photos. I accidentally removed attribution, now restored. I agree it's sublime, but can't take credit.
