Thanks, Mike
It is an individualized decal.
I contacted "WrapArts" in Berlin, asked if they could plotter/cut my 3 stripe design in 3M Gloss Black Rose.
The exact dimensions are: 2,5cm stripe - 3cm space - 34cm stripe - 3cm space - 2,5cm stripe

All shops can do that.

My e-bike project was super fun and it turned out to be a real contact magnet. Can't drive under the radar with it

Not the most comfortable ride, but best cruiser in town. Form follows design

More pics please! Maybe a build description? I'm a sucker for well designed customs, regardless of whether the emblem has a horse or a white propeller

2 x 300Wh Flux capacitors are in place...powering a noiseless 250W PENDIX 65 Nm hub motor...shifting while pedaling under high load has never been easier with the noise- and stepless ENVIOLO NuVinci hub...MAGURA MT4 hydraulic disc brakes keep this bike monster under control.

Left battery slot --> provides power to hub motor. Right battery slot is for recharging with an intergrated charger.
Battery status is visualized by different colors red (empty) orange - yellow . green (full). Additional is has white LED (just light) + blue LED (error code signals)
Back to the future

It still counts as an insurance and TÜV free bicycle. That was the goal.

sorry for another bike pic, but I found that gadget quite interesting:
That little black box is a radar, which scans the area behind for "anything" approaching you (200m distance) and will show that exactly in an app (visually and acustically).

Well done sir. The saddle bags are a nice touch

Those radars are awesome. They really help with safety.

Pretty incredible. I already liked it when it was simple. Of course you'd go over-the-top, haha.
Good stuff.
Where is you "build" located on the web? Enjoying the pictures here but...

That "rear radar" device has me thinking, especially as a motorcycle rider.
Link?

over the top, yup...that's me. The bike build is not on the web, exclusively here

radar = Garmin Varia RV315
https://youtu.be/yF5-gUyjKaE
It works incredibly well, I wonder why there isn't such a device for the automotive industry.

I got another little device, which could be useful on tour: Cycplus mini epump


And another gadget, Blaze laser light, holy schnikey...I will be lit up like a christmas tree


yep, it's the little extra flashlight in the middle (had to completely redo the mounting in that gas...uh face mask dispenser holder)

Gumball or LeMans?

omg...a plotter is coming...and you know what that means...poor little Boxster.
Let's see, if I will be able to plot those numbers (AI cannot find them as true type)

Cool

Up north in Denmark. The beach right behind those dunes is an official road...how awesome is that?

I like those red stripes on the front fenders going up to the doors.

Not shure about the number thing.

My Plotter: Silhouette America Cameo 4

Had to learn from scratch, but you'll get the hang of it pretty fast.
It is "small", the studio software is really good and it can plot up to 30cm wide sheets/endless rolls ---> was an absolute MUST for me!

First results WIP:


Now the photoshopped "number thing" is for REAL. Created my own vector numbers from scratch and italicized them...came out better than I hoped for.

Some tail mods, I would like to create.
That blue glowing license number is just an homage to the officially featured Cyberpunk 2077 911 on the Porsche website. Not sure, if I will run into trouble with anything "glowing". But that is real, not photoshopped.
Those 2 red led stripes next to the license plate should replace the rear FOG LIGHTS (obviously photoshopped). Just need to source some certified fog lights like that.
