Bet it looks good though
I think it does, but then I'm kind of attached to it after 23 years. I spent months trying decide the colour scheme – a nightmare!
I spent a lot of time researching on Retrobike and the web – there were so many great examples to see and be inspired by:http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... mp;t=33003
In the end, at the powder coaters, I was swayed by the colour samples I could see when I got there. I've not posted any before/after pics of the resto yet.
I think the iconic bright orange and white fade is a real classic. There have been a few variations on the shade of orange used, from a citrus orange through to one with more red and more neon. I think with some, a pearlescent white was used too. I think a hot zingy orange is great, may be...
