Hi folks, I posted up some pics recently of my 1989 Raleigh 531C and a comment was made regarding the bar tape. I was conscious that it didn't really match the bike so I have had a liitle change around. So your honest opinions are welcome please -

I'd say you are trying too hard. Stick with plain white.

I can see the merit in wanting to do somthing different. At the end of the day only your opinion matters :D

I like it. With a frame that bright, I'd either attempt to match the colours or just go all black with everything else to draw the eye to the frame.
