I find it rather amusing how Kleins are often derided as being a rich man's toy from back in the day, which is why so many of them are all immaculate and yadda, yadda, yadda...

...and FATS were the out-and-out racers bike of choice and yadda, yadda, yadda...

...when 'Stephen Genova' as advertised, is a full time banker...

Anyway, toss-up of a few schemes for me [as no doubt for others] but went for Arrest me Red as it's simply a combo that works great on the old SAB of 'Roon and I wanted there to be at least a couple of votes against the more obvious and iconic choices.

Had forgotten how many brilliant colour schemes had been through the mill over the years...

Okay...for all you folks sitting on Team Violet , Harlequin , Grello and yes even titanium Yos.......

Here are the original Aquafade paint codes so you can transform your ugly old paint scheme into the most desired Fat Chance paint job ever!

Dupont Imron Hot Hues
Sweet and Sassy Lime Sherbert #W9336
Ocean Blue #W9344

Just kidding of course. But yes I believe the above codes are correct.

To make matters more confusing...

The aquafade paint scheme is different depending on which year of Yo you have.

On my earlier year the green is more "vibrant" compared with later years which is a thicker paint and more "olive" coloured. The blue has remained similar throughout so they must have used the same paint code over the years.

I've had about three frames side by side and compared them all and they are all blinkin' different.
