Painting Suggestions Requested

Greetings!

I have a Sette reken frame that is finished in a matte black. I am looking for ideas on a paint design / scheme that would really make this bike stand out.

thanks!
Don

I can't find the pictures now, but there was an example a while back where they had painted the entire bike in black and yellow stripes. Very unique. Very bee-like.

The frame seems a complete statement on it's own. The best way to make it stand out is to outfit it with components that allow it to run it's best.

I would search for bronze rims and leave the ornamentation to a minimum. The frame is pleasing to my eye.
