I building up a bike for my buddies fiance sorta as a surprise to her. She lives about 7-8 miles from her job and wants to start commuting on bike for fitness.
Anyways, I picked up a bike for free from my neighbor (old dude like 80, super nice), but it had just been sitting in his backyard untouched for a few years. It looks to be about a 56cm mixte frame. She's 5'10 or so, should fit fine. It was pretty rusty, i had to use a 2x4 to get enough leverage to break the stem free of the fork they were so rusted together.
I soaked all the parts in acid and scrubbed em with an old toothbrush to get all the rust off. I had a friend sandblast the frame and fork.
Now comes the color. It has black tires, seat, bar wrap, and cable guides. All the components are the original silver/chrome. She likes pink a lot, she said white or pale colors are nice too.
What color do I paint the frame? Pink frame with black lugs? White frame pink lugs? Pink frame silver lugs? Black frame pink lugs?
Some decent pictures of bikes in this color range would help, but google didn't bring up much. Fashionista and hipsters of ssfg unite with your suggestion
