Thought some of you might like this. It's my new '17 Husky 350, but I designed a vintage styled graphics design that still retains some modern styling. I've always loved the old 70's - 80's styled Huskys, and thought the new bikes would lend themselves to the older design.

That is awesome looking. I really like the chrome on the radiator shrouds, it really gives a nod to the 70's and 80's tanks.

How did you add the silver to the shroud graphics? Is it as durable as the rest of the sticker?

Needs a "MONO X" decal on the swingarm instead of all free advertising.

Pumpkins - it's all in the graphics - Elusive Graphics has the ability to do chrome in their graphics. It's got a clear laminate over it just like everywhere else. It's just as durable as everywhere else. I guess the only drawback to the chrome area is that since it's so reflective it will show scuffs and scratches a little more. But I'm OK with that because I like the look so much.

My 2016 rmz450, made to look similar to a 95 rm125 I had when I was 13, using white number plates, yellow rear guard, that I purposely left the warning stickers on.

Sold it, but my 09 450, never did get around to changing the seat cover. Currently riding a '14 YZ250,
thinking about doing a 99 McGrath throwback kit when the current stuff needs replacing. Would love to see some pics if anyone has done that.
