Please see my 1991 Yo Eddy , this is my first real project and am looking forward to the build,needless to say I need a bikes worth of bits if you can help 8) I was originally going to build in blue,then red, now blue and green, just can't decide !
The pictures don't do any justice to the paint job on this bike.The frame has been fully restored and is in mint condition,its almost to nice to use !
Feel free to make any suggestions or advice

Looks very nice, was going with blue , but after holding red and blue skewers against the paint, the red seems to stand out and compliment the aquafade better,esp against the blue of the frame

****UPDATE****

My thoughts have now returned to blue !! :lol: :? :? :?

I always found this frame lovely (have some blue ringle hubs on 517 ceramic for when I will find one such frame :lol: ) but I think red parts may clash a bit with it. :?

blue is possibly a safer choice ( even if often seen)

silver may do the trick also in a more discrete build
