But what colour should it be?

This will be going to Bob Jackson's once I decide on the forks. Or do I stick with these?

But what colour should it be? Perhaps two colour fade? One solid or metallic etc?

All suggestions met with scorn :lol:

Going tasteful. Yes really

What is it? I can't see it, it's camouflaged itself into its surroundings :lol:

Forks look OK to me? Are they original to the frame?

Deep Burgundy / Ripe Aubergine could be a nice colour, or black with chromed stays?

Don't like the fork! Looks like a replacement, Always gonna be difficult to find the right fork with the right steerer length .... I think I have a fork same if not similar to the one on my pioneer but think the steerer is waaaay too short, would need extending.

Colour options are wide open when it comes to fades on pioneers though but the blue yellow fade as on the adverts look great.

Good to see you went for it though :D
