a balance bike. picked it up cheap enough for me to consider giving it a customization. nothing flashy, as it's not a keeper really.
i'm a little obsessed with Specialized's Gulf colour scheme (as seen on the 2000 Stumpjumper)
saw a wooden balance bike with the same type of colours and was inspired:

have stripped it, cleaned it an greased all the necessary bits.
first thing is to replace the horrid plastic brake lever with something a little more substantial.
then some nice foam grips (black).
i'm thinking a simple rattle can job for the blue and then some vinyl stickers for the orange stripes.
whats the best way to match the 'Specialized blue' without having it to reference from? is there a colour code?
apologies for the shocking pics, waiting for christmas to roll on so i can get my new camera
