Any of you B17 riders using the green one? If so any pics on your bike? I am riding a standard black B17 right now, but loving the look of the green one. Just a little nervous to get it not knowing what it will look like on my bike. The color of my bike will probably work.

I had a red one once, the color was great for about 4 years then it started turning into a dark brownish maroon. The green looks great, I saw it once on a classic lugged steel Raleigh, green paint to match. I would be worried the color will go with time though.

After awhile the color might turn, but that's ok-it's patina!
