Thanks coomber.

Its just a semi mock up really though, just the parts i had for it.

The nitromors is taking of the home paint job but then ran out of nitromors!

Nope, no green. I would have liked to have done it white/purple (camo probably) or some kind of lime/purple but then remembered i already have all the blue parts for it!

Its just my worthless opinion but I have yet to see a camo paint scheme I like. Just think it looks really cheap, I'd go for solid colours and if you want some variety do swingarm different colour.

If you want something special do a solid strip a la Cotic. That looks ace.

Ahhh but this wouldnt have been just any old came (urban camo). Its not for this bike now anyhow, but one day!

I think i mentioned above, was going to go gloss black (or maybe satin/matt) with blue decals.

Just before i read your post i wasthinking of possibly a blue back end, think it will be too much concentrated though.

Im sure i will think of something to set it apart.

Had the hubs, were very nice but sold them to a mate although i very slightly preferred them over the ones i have now. However, the da bomb ones i can get again, these not so much.

Full circle.
