Hi everyone,

I have a Raleigh Montage that the previous owner hand painted matt black but underneath there is a sort of pale powder green colour which I have also seen on two montage bikes on ebay. Can any one tell me what this colour is called so if I decide to go for an authentic coloured respray I'll know what to ask for ?

On a similar point, whats the thoughts on original colour schemes v whatever you fancy colourwise ie is it considered bad form in the retro bike world to change the bikes colour spec from original ?

That aside I'll probably change the coluor anyway for reasons of simplicity and cost.
