    What kind of bike? I like the color but I couldn’t see it on a dual sport or something like that. If it’s going on a cruiser I say spray away.

    That black cherry looks amazing. I use to wash big trucks and a guy had his painted a similar color, it was a pain to wash though. The soap would dry really quick in the sun and would leave steaks pretty bad. Other than that it’s one of my favorites. Being you’re putting it in a bike and it’s a lot smaller it probably wouldn’t be too hard to wash. Good luck and be sure to post pics when you get it painted.

    Looks similar to the factory color on my 2015 Boulevard C90. I love it and get a lot of compliments. They call it "Candy Dark Cherry Red"

    Put up a poll and I'll bet it's unanimous.

    On an ultra limited I think it would look great. I think that one of the newer cvo models have came in a similar color to give an idea what it would look like. I have a denim black ultra classic and hate the paint. Can’t keep it clean and no way to fix scratches.

    This is close enough to Rusian plum that I would vote yes.

    Very similar to H-D's Black Cherry which is on my 2005 Road King. Looks like a solid color paint until the sun hits it and then the metallic pops.

    Paint it yourself. Bikes are easy. Plus paint is cheap.
