yellow bikes always gave me bad luck...... I would go get some flourescent orange and green and do like an orange base and some kind of design over the top with the green.....watch some orange county choppers or one of those biker shows to pick up some painting techniques and go at it with some of the spray paint I suggested....oh, and make sure you sand the old paint down and primer first....

just remember, you can't go wrong with black...
