    I'm interested in the "sticker look." That is, motorcycles with stickers all over them. On the fairings. Gas tank. Boxes (though that's more common). The bikes can be "bombed" or (more interesting to me) the stickers can be chosen, arranged, to create a look.

    Here's one I always admired from the great "Cack" threads on this site https://advrider.com/f/threads/cack-round-the-world.825661/ Fabulous reads and pics, and worth checking out.
    326733416_4o2K7-M.jpg And here is another, from over at Biker Girl Bling (not sure if I'm allowed to link it) but it's dubbed a Hippie Style Custom: hippie-style-custom-motorcycle.jpg
    And, notoriously (I will probly regret this), there's the Top Gun bike, which I think is a good looking bike, though I don't care for the movie, and the theme of the stickers is not my thing: Ninja_LS_Movie_Set.jpg Do you have a bike with stickers? Or pics of bikes with stickers that you like? Let's see em!
    Thanks!

    Does it have to be a street bike?

    Rick farless

    Look up rick fairless bikes. He’s done a lot of custom in the old hippie look in tie die and cartoons. Pretty wild stuff not stickers but may give an idea. There was an rtw eletraglide that was covered in stickers.

    As for themes, mine are mostly an auto biography of the bike in question. Where it’s been and what it’s done. Often having decals of clubs I have rode with or have helped me out. To look at my bike and read the stickers is to have an idea of the stories the bike would tell.

    I like seeing ANY bike with stickers. Dirt included. If there were an all inclusive forum here (is there?) would have posted there but I chose road warrior because I ride a street bike. Thanks!

    Thanks to you all. Please keep them coming. And if you have close up pics of your stickers/ arrangements please include them. Ruffstuff, that is the type of look I'm thinking of but I'm struggling to see what your stickers are. Thank you!

    You are not only showing me stickers, you're teaching me vocabulary. (Didn't know about "pad rats") Like the idea of using the sticker in memory of someone. And I really like the look. Thanks!
