Not sure if that would go over well, especially if he pulled me over for something else...
NOT really a problem or concern, "KGB is more relaxed here".............Plate # and VIN number are the only real identifiers used.............color is way down on the list and is very subjective as the title might say white for red, white and blue bike.

Had a HONDA sticker on a Mitsubshi truck some years back .....got in an accident cops put HONDA down on the report for the make...................

I do not think my insurance ever asked the color......

Depending on the size (fairing) your looking a couple of hundered for DIY motorcycle depending how frugle you are with the waste.

There is a technique and learning curve too make it look good

60" wide by running foot is $32.00 ($32 per running foot) brushed finish metal look, is easily found on the internet, carbon fiber look price at $23 per running foot 60" width and $13 for 30" running foot prices may vary slightly.
