I think that's an Anthony question!

Mine was from South Africa originally and I bought a second one from Poland, it could be US and UK were the fades and the rest of the territories single colour

The colour is called Porsche Green, the titanium colour refers to the colour of the forks and the stem. The solid colours were USA colours and the two tone silver and a colour was UK. Don't know which colours went to other countries in Europe and the rest of the world.

I'm considering color matching stem and fork, but maybe I should let it be titanium-green.

I have a 20" version of Jakobs frame, the colour is pretty hard to capture on "film". Mine was bought here in Finland, although I think I have seen the two-coloured ones here too. Sorry for the not-so-good pics...

Good work so far Jakob!

good job, my Kilauea needs the same rear end treatment, as that's the worst area.

So finally I have completed the rearstay paintjob, took me some time...
Decided (after BIG troubles with clearcoat) to paint the full length of both stays.
I'm still very satisfied about how close the color matches the original and can truly recommend Motip autopaint.

I have build it up mostly with M900 and Kona parts, still a bit of gearcabling etc. to do.

Enjoy :wink:
