rim tape alternative

been looking at rim tape and have seen pics of the crossrunner with the official Honda rim tape.  very nice but maybe not quite what I was looking for.  I found this ebay seller and they do all sorts of decals  n rim tape
 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/8-x-VFR-Wheel-Rim-Stickers-Decals-vetc-400-750-800-NEW-b-/300627588034?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item45feccf3c2

this is exactly what I was looking for.  they do a crossrunner one too but this was neat and brighten the black wheels nicely.  Will post pic when they arrive

    Nice indeed. I wonder if thats a real life picture as they seem a bit large considering the rim width. Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

    well nice and easy.  remove backing tape carefully.  apply and rub.  leave for 10 mins and peel clear cover off.  brilliant.
     
    I've yet to remove clear film yet so you can see it in pic

    very happy with it.  they do a Honda racing hrc one but the hrc had some blue in it.  the decal I went for had the red so was colour coordinated to the red x on bike lol.

    Hi,

    it looks really good.
    In combination with the white colour it is perfect..maybe it fits also with my black one.

    I will check.
