I'm working on another project, this time the frame and fork were purchased separately. The fork was fully painted a hideous color, and seeing that it had some chrome underneath, I stripped it. The crown and shoulders were obviously properly prepped for paint at some time in the past, but the chrome below that is nice.
My goal is to paint the upper part of the fork some color that goes well with the medium green of the frame. I don't think it is worth a color-match, and I probably would not be satisfied with a near-match result. Due to the condition of the frame, this will be a beater build, so a careful rattle-can job will suffice.
Any comments on what color would go well with a medium green with fine silver flake metallic? Note that the picture is a bit washed-out, the green is deeper than it looks (I don't know how to use my camera ). Nissan ultra-yellow comes to mind (yellow with fine gold flake), but I'm not sure I can get that in a rattle can.
