    Wade Simmons RM7 shots needed

    Hey guys I am rebuilding / upgrading my RM6 to an RM7. As such I would like to replicate the WS paint job, yet with the original RM6 Colors (Yellow / Black / Silver) instead of the Sliver / Greeen / Black.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    All the photos of a Wade Simmons RM7 that you could ever need.

    The fade flames are going to be the biggest challenge

    I have most of those, yet the are no good shots of the top of the top tube, and the bottom of the down tube. I was curious if the flames wrap all the way around the down tube, or is there a break?

    Flames wrap all the way around the downtube and top tube, but you can see they aren't symmetrical when they do that. It would have been a precut flames mask wrapped around the tube. The area of green fade also varies widely from frame to frame, although the black flame background starts in the same place along the tubes. The flames start half way between the WB bosses on the DT, and directly above that spot vertically on the top tube. You can also see that the flame mask also starts at a different spot in the wrap on the tubes so no two bikes would be exactly the same for where a particular flame section is located. The nice thing about that variability is that you don't have to go bananas trying to exactly match the flames. The length of the flames was longer on the RM7 compared to the ETSX SE Hot Rod paint scheme.

    You could use some pre-cut motorcycle flame masking like these
