Im glad your repainting it, it was a horrific build before. hopefully build this time will have taste,

looking forward to the outcome.

So after a night's thought my shortlist is:

- black (no - too dull for this)
- some kind of glossy gunmetal grey (maybe - a bit too modern? Could have a sparkle finish?)
- a Ferrari red. Not seen any older zaskars in that colour.
- White! That could b cool. Pearlescent, shiny white.
-silver. Might just look like a lazy polished excuse. Either polish it or don't.


Thoughts?

I wonder if they could do a transparent anodizing. Polish it then trans anodize it. That might be a cool look.

polish it and protect it with rim wax - designed for polished alloy wheels. it will go some way to protecting it.

do you have other bikes? could this be a dry weather only bike?

if you keep on top of it and dont get it wet it wont take much maintaining.

just dont let it go anywhere near a salted road :twisted:

You might have hit the nail on the head there.
