I like the fade from blue to black but, it needs something else.
I am not a designer but I think it lacts something.
I can't put my finger on it.

Looks OK, but I'm kinda like lcurts. Maybe a more gradual transition between the two colors? Looks like a quality job; smooth, glossy, no runs.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

The blending of blue into black is well done and nicely finished.
I`m usually a proponent of the "less is more" school, when it comes to paint designs, and I like this. If you think it needs "something else", I think a thin 1/8" pinstripe flamelike design woven on the top of the fender might look sharp.

I like it a lot the way it is. Everybody likes different stuff though.

I think it looks good but needs something. It looks like a good base for something else.

I'm with Flightcontrol, maybe a more gradual transition between colors, but your paint work, looks fantastic.

You did a fantastic job, the way it looks in the pictures. I think I'd leave it like it is. I really like it.....

If you have to do something else, a very light black flame job from the black extending the flame licks on the blue would look nice. I think it would ease the color transition. Make it light and clear over the final.

Good luck.
