Guzzi paint mock-ups

Took some cans of rattle ball and painted the fender and tank black, and the knee cutouts red on one side and white on the other. Added some pinstripes and decals on and came up with these. Leaning towards the black and red one.
or maybe the black and white one...

Weighed the machine today (using the old bathroom scale under each wheel method), and came up with around 470 lbs, with no gas but oil in the engine, trans and rear.  Subtracting oil and the tool kit, dry weight would be around 460 lbs, a whopping 50lbs less than the 511 lbs dry weight per the manual. The factory owners and shop manuals say 232 kg (511 lbs).  Many sources on the internet say 224 kg (494 lbs), so not sure which is correct, as the internet is never wrong.
