Show off your Crazy Paint schemes

Not sure if this has been done before , but I'd love to see some cool paint schemes.


I loved the 80's stuff especially, neons and splashy colors. Any style of bike welcome.

This Diamondback is tame compared to some of the Zunows and other bikes in this thread, but it's still eye-popping:

It is some decoupage work I did using labels from one of my favourite coffee houses... it took 25-30 hours.

I left the Carlton decal intact.

early 90's DB Expert TG that was a recent pick-up. it's no Zunow, but it's bright and i'd argue that the subtle tiger stripe splatter earns it a spot here.

Never heard of this name. Is this Italian? (guessing by the Di Picce, but Zunow doesn't sound Italian) beautiful!
