It is amazing how removing all this litter can clean up and enhance the look of a bike. All that will remain, will be the tank logos and possibly the screen 'Honda' logo, as it is quite subdued.

I removed all the stickers I could from my original VFR(87) - the tank logo and the VFR 750 were lacquered over so those stayed, it was much nicer w/o the graphics (you still see it in my avatar).  I have been thinking along the same line for the CR, and even I thought I could order the Honda tank sticker from a black CR (which is white) and put it on my white one to have a very subtle "white on white" effect.

Possibly, but it is not a job to be rushed!  :017:

I don't mind the wings on the tank as they are logos rather than text. That said, I rather like your idea of the white on white look. If you do ever try it, then please post pics  :028:
