Not sure what vendor's you're looking at... I was looking at the "C" stripe too and found a bunch of styles at RiderGraphix. I also was thinking of keeping off the lower part too. If you check out their photo gallery, you'll see a picture or two of people that didn't install that part and I think it was a good look. In the end though I ended up on hockey stripes.im curious. im looking into something similar for the rear.... minus the lower part of your graphic
I wasn't sure when I first saw the small version of the pictures but when I pulled them up I think the combo will be awesome. I think the hash style elements on the hood stripes and on the C stripes will really pull the two different stripes together.
