    Yes, either the blue, or the flat black. Or a combination of the two, if that's possible.

    Yea flat black is really nice too. Its simple but looks nice. I wouldn't combine both though. One or the other.

    Nice colours. Baby blue looks real nice and so does Candy apple red. But I can't go past flat black. I can just imagine the bike that colour...!

    My bike is flat black and it's pretty much my favorite color, but that candy apple red just looks too hot! I liked the suggestion above about mixing the red and black.

    I know it wasn't one of your choices but I say Hot Rod (bright) yellow, with black 4 link rear bars.

    I do love the candy apple red. I personally had this guy do my Honda valve cover in it, and I love it. I'm just not so sure how I would like it on my bike. I've always thought it would look awsome if it were all black.





    Just not too sure what I'm gonna end up going with at this point.

    baby blue wrinkle, i like best. next, the red. personally, for bikes, i really dont like blacks. black is my favorite color for cars. but for some reason i just dont think blacks ever do justice to the form of a bike. i think the shape, form and appearance of a bicycle, be it a dually or hardtail, present both the idea and the application of its form, shape etc more acutely and accurately than any other mechanism i have ever seen. and to color something that articulate black seems to me very unfair. eh, call me crazy. anyway. i hope this project pans out well for you man. i think it will. best of luck!

    I definantly recommend the red. Its just the nicest color, especially for bikes. I have a red bike as a matter of fact. That color would look great with that shiney mirror black too. Something about shine makes it look so new. The blue is an appealing color but theres no shine.


    Ohh, purty.
