Colnago Super, what color??

Hi all,

after i sold my Colnago master olympic last week to Germany, i already found a new bike: A colnago super frame

The paint is in quite bad condition and there is some rust on the surface.
So i will get the frame painted soon!

But i was wondering what is a nice color for this frame?

Just give me your ideas please!!

the one on the far right, i always wanted a bike that was like a bright highlighter color, it'd be pretty sick, or if you do an 80's color scheme that would be out of this world.

Don't be afraid to stray from the ordinary, generic is fun and all but i'd rather have something that stands out
