My 00 R1 House of Color camelion green to purple with brushed aluminium tribal graphics, chrome logos. I bought this bike wrecked and fixed it up and painted it, the motor was blown, and had damage to the plastic. I paid $3200 for it, bought another motor for $800 with only 2400 miles on it, the previous owner killed himself by t boning a car at ove a 100mph, I figured with the paint and extra parts I have a little over $4200 in it

No... the bike came from my friend, he killed the motor at the drag strip, the engine killed the kid who who it before him was because he got carried away with the power and the speed, he had a Katana 600 the week before and was tired of not being able to keep up with the local guys here. He some how thought that it was the bike that made you fast not your riding skills, he was nice guy, just young and foolish and has his R1 only a week, I kind of like the fact that I have something of his, just because he mis used it does not mean it is cursed. In my business every bike that goes through the shop has a story behind it, sometimes someone is injuried sometimes not, there is always a lesson to learn by talking to the riders

Have you thought of picking a bad ass color for first layer and then doing a sweet tribal design over it. Or having the first layer a black (flat or shiny) and then painting a candy color over it, with a tribal design. Hell your underlying color could be anything. Dark blue as your first layer with candy apple red overtop might give you a badass purplish color and then tribal over...
