I'd go with red and black - black in the scallops on the tank, and the sides of the tailpiece.    I've always liked Honda's wineberry red metallic, it would stand out a treat against the black.  The red would tie in with your spring colours on the back end as well.  Chrome or black on the frame.

Hey guys thanks for the suggestion , I've got one another thought in mind that I use vinyl wrapping instead of paint and later do a clear coat on the wraps to protect against the scratchs. Just wanted to know is it possible please share your experience guys .

Paint it, your spraying anyway and the wrap will never feel like a buffed clear.

Not sure about clearing over vinyl keep us posted if you go that road  :o

If you do go with wrap, get them to put an additional clear wrap on top when they do it.  Putting a relatively inflexible layer of lacquer on top of vinyl isn't going to end well in the long term.
