Paint ideas

I was just wondering what kind of paint schemes you guys have on your bikes. I was gonna paint mine dark grey frame and black parts, and I'm wondering what some other people think look good.

Chameleon.

You can get it at your local autoparts store. Its made by Dupli-color and comes in a 3 pack. 1 can is primer, 1 is the paint, and the last can is clear coat. its like $20-25.

i think this kind only changes 2 different color but i could be wrong. ive seen one bike that changed green and gold and my buddies bike changes purple and blue

best bet would be to go to the autoparts store and see what they got

i reckon that black frame and parts, spokes, hubs, bars, sprocket etc, and then chrome rims, crank, and stem looks tasty!

I have a brown bike with forest green handle bars and fork. Before that I had a custom white, black, and grey camo bike with all black parts.. it looked so nice. I like the grey with all black, sounds nice.. cream with all brown parts would be totally insane though.. in fact that would be amazing.

Before you apply the clear coat, find a dead animal and get some bone fragments and a hairy peice of flesh. glue to the frame somewhere (top tube near front is nice spot) then put some fake blood or blood colored nail polish let everything dry and clearcoat over that. F****g brutal.

Another twist on this (and a little less gory!) is to grind up some fish scales to make a metalflake paint job. Elvis supposidly had a car painted like this.
