    cool paint job?

    ..anyone have any cool ideas on how to paint my frame? I've got a couple spinning around in my head..just gotta figure out if they'll work... right now its bright orange and I think I need a change this year

    one idea is to do like a big target... have the center on one of the tubes...and then have the rings radiate out across the frame..not sure if you'd read it as a target..or how it would work with the round tubing..I've got to do a mock up with some paper towel tubes or something..

    the target idea sounds kinda cool as a concept, but there's so much empty space in a bike frame it'd probably come out looking like just stripes, i'd think...

    I always wanted to do the flat black frame and fork with the down tube painted like a giant erection and the bottom bracket shell painted like a nut sack. sure it's not for everyone but what the hell.

    apparently you can get screw on nutsacks as some sort of novelty item to stick on the rear bumper of your car.

    Get really artistic and paint it in such a way that it looks like the paint is burning off the front of the head tube and the leading surfaces of the other tubes. It will appear that you've been going so fast that you're doing a re-entry style meltdown.
    It looks cool in my head anyway.

    No apparently about that one. There is a cover band around here that has a set on their trailer. They have pictures of it on their website (www.lazyeyerocks.com).
