Think I would go with a blue or grey which would contrast nicely with the yellow of the graphics.

I don't think i'm going to be able to use them as i think the downtube ones and possibly the seatube ones are for an aluminium frame with much larger diametre tubes :(


As a result of the above the paint and decals can be any colour.

Top of my current list is Orange paint and fine scrolled type font decals.
But top of the list changes moment by moment as there is so much choice :?

Oh yes sorry missed that! In that case yes you have a very difficult choice.

Orange is a cool colour though....

I rather like the orange metallic that Ford spray the Nutterb'stard version of the Focus, the SST or something. Nice colour orange anyway.

Thats exactly the colour I had in mind, I have a planned build around that colour myself which may happen one day.

Ford also did a really nice non metallic called Vista Orange, it is an excellent match for the orange that Laverda used to use on their motorbikes.

It may also be the colour chosen for my Roberts DB. I say may, as I gave Roberts a choice of four shades of orange, and told them to pick the one they felt was most suitable. :shock:

Pure orange RAL 2004 or maybe the more intense Fluro orange?
