Default what do you think?

hey my bike got a paint job for my bday. it was a complete suprise to me as a gift. its still not completely done i know, but almost.
do you think it turned out good? its actually candied so the pic doesnt do much for it. it has a graphite base-same exact color as the rims and then a BRIGHT orange candy and then it was wrapped in the chevy "daytona sunset metallic"-thats the kinda design part color. in the sun the whole thing lights up, but in the shade its maroonish.
the guy who painted it wanted to "do something special and suprise us with it"-bc he wanted to take lots of pics to show what he can do.

It almost makes you want to throw on a velvet smiling jacket and slippers before you go out for sedate Sunday jaunt wearing a nice leather flying helmet..... he he.
Nah.... only jokin'... it's very classy. Nice job. Who stopped him adding his special touch?

Bugger me, where did that come from? A smiling jacket? I meant a smoking jacket but.. hmmm. Perhaps there a market there..... Grinning attire anyone?

Looks cool. I would have put the grab rail on though as the area looks a bit too bare with the banana seat.
