Looking for new colors

My frame, Randy Noir, goes to the painters in a week or two.

I'd like to try something a little different. I saw a motorcycle
with a sort of creamsicle color, a very pale orange that was quite
attractive. That might be an option. The painter uses Du Pont fleet
and House of Kolors.

Seen anything interesting recently?

Check out Land Shark and Cyclart. John only paints the frames he builds, but look for a gallery of his work for ideas. Check out Cyclart's galleries too, and maybe Llewellen for great vibrant colors.

Thanks,
I prefer simple designs and rich colors. As a canvas on which to express design,
I feel a bike is a cramped space. It's easy to overdo it and get a look that's too busy.

That's my 2 cents.

If you want to see a nice palette of classic solid colors, try googling "Model A Ford". All of the fenders will be black, but the body and trim colors are very interesting. I happen to like Copra Drab and Chicle, but it's all a personal preference.
