Why dont you think about a bit of detailing ?? Air-brushing perhaps, or the easy and effective way, base coat colour cosisting of multi colours towards the head tube and on the forks, decals added (say for example flower shapes like from Mint Sauce MBUK in the 90's!!) then spray black or whatever over the whole lot, let dry, peel off all the little flowerd decals then you have bright multi colour flowers coming through !! Laquer in to finish !!!

Hows that !!!! Youd'e never gues I never got round to doing that to one of mine would you ?? Thats for a rough Klein when one turns up :-)
