Both of the painters have good history so who ever you choose I don't feel you will be dissapointed

as to paint. If I personally wanted a red bike I wouldn't buy a Klein. Kleins are all about the mad paint.

Why not have a paint set in mind but also approach both painters and ask..if you were told..do the paint you have always wanted to..what would it look like? and that way you might still get mad and unique?

Dare to be different. I'd go for flat black with gloss black decals.

You know what? I know I'm going to come in for a load of criticism here by the purists, but.....

If it was mine, I'd go Fat Chance Grello. 8)

I think I will consider this option :-)

Ok everybody, thanks for all the help.
I did not decide yet, but shorten my list of colors to Desert or Storm.
Why Desert? Because it original is a Klein Adroit Desert.
Why Storm? I always liked this color very much. As you guys know, I did have ione, but that one was to big for me :-(
So maybe I will repaint it like this (without the purple parts :-)):
