Most creative/flamboyant paint job you've seen?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Most creative/flamboyant paint job you've seen?

I was thinking of getting a Lisa Frank inspired paint job. What's the most creative, flamboyant, jaw-dropping one you've seen?

Google images for Landshark bicycles and you will find flamboyant paint schemes to your heart's delight. Next to that, many classic Tommasinis, Rossins and Colnagos had pretty wild paint schemes.

I googled it and saw unicorns and rainbows If I was going to go with an artist I would pick the best in human history. Frank Frazetta.
