Opinion on color change (Photoshop)

I have a 09 Bonneville (black). The tank was trashed by the previous owner. I have come across a T100 10' tank that is green/cream colored.

I had my son Photoshop the green/cream tank to my bike. Please give me your honest opinion on how it looks with the rest of the bike being black. Please be painfully honest in your opinions as I haven't decided anything yet!!!

That is not a bad look at all, with the green fenders it gives it a "classic" look. I like it.

I think it looks fine with the black fenders, interesting combo.

Goat-ee, since you're changing the color, you could always play with variations, unless you want to be true to Triumph's model-year tank design. This is just an example, not a suggestion, necessarily:

The front fender looks bobbed & doesn't go w/the rest of the bike. Tank is fine. My .02 worth.

I love the sound of exploding gasoline.
