This bikes paint theme was inspired by Team Gulf of the LeMans race scene.
They hay had Ford and Porsche cars painted with many themes that use these colors. The strips are also very race car like and the front headtube area is the hood of the car. It was a situation where the headbadge was just not going to work on the bike. Getting raced this weekend I hope Ken finds it to ride as well as it looks. Good luck.
