Hi guys Im looking for inspiration on painting the forks, bars and stem. When purchased new she was Cinder Gold. I had her resprayed in 1994 by M Steel cycles to this loverley metallic red. I kept the forks, stem and bars black as original. After many years of stored in a leaking shed I decided to rebuild her.

The quandry is what colour for the forks etc?

I was thinking of taking the light blue of the 1994 decals and using that.

Any suggestions welcome........

Nice Cinder Cone. I'd probably have the forks and stem repainted in black. Another option I'd consider would be to try and match the fork to the frame, black stem and bars.

Nice .. The 94 were silver decals.. The blue you have is 96.. I would go for the silver/gun metal colour of the 96 for the fork/stem :)
