Seconded. Those tubes are so chunky you could even take the yellow along the top side of the top tube. And you could go with a gold pinstripe along the side of the downtube on the red one, with ivory beneath.

I mean, it would be a MASSIVE pain to keep clean. But it would look the business.

I understand what you guys are saying, and my mind isn’t completely made up yet but I did mock up the frames in ways that reflected the liveries more closely (yellow head and striping - top half of tubes red bottom half ivory white) but although the gag was obvious, they looked like separate projects.

I really want them to look like they’ve come out of the same stable.

I think the simpler paint schemes with the bare alloy rear triangle suit both bikes so well and you can let your decals do the talking. You could always have custom saddle coverings in complimentary colours.

Any recommendations? (On saddlers)
