I think probably just black on tan. That way it will look good with black/blue or green or orange tin, whatever I end up with. What do you need for artwork? I was thinking of some text to go along with it but I'm not sure how. It would probably be "Friar's Ride." Not sure on the font style. If I have time tomorrow I'll pull up the bulldog graphic in Illustrator and throw some type at it and see what I think.
Next I'll have to get one of them fancy brass battery covers with the bulldog etched into it.
