Are you painting it yourself or paying someone else to paint it? If the latter, take the inspiration pic to the shop and tell them you want that color... ask to see what they have that is closest

'06 VStar 1100 Classic - black with ghost flames!
Cobra sissy bar and luggage rack
National Cycle windshield
National Cycle quick release hardbags
Lindby engine guard
Driving lights mounted to engine guard

More to come when I save enough cash!

OK, you got white walls and a ton of chrome to start with so, that part is decided.

You can always go black but, matte wouldn't work with the whitewalls and chrome, at least to me, so, that means a high gloss finish.

What about a strong aqua marine and a white leather seat?

Purple is the best. Well...you did ask for my opinion. In this case, given your inspiration, you just don't want my opinion. I generally don't like green. And the darker more olive it is, the less I like it. If you must go green...go emerald.
