What color to powdercoat?

Powdercoating my IRO Angus. Trying to go for the classic look; silver/polished components, riser/flat bars. I have black CXP 22 rims with silver spokes/hubs. Got any color suggestions? Examples would be nice (Cars, motorcycles, bicycles pictures).

Thanks.

Do something rad like a champagne, or that wheat color that the kilo (pro?) is coming in now.

Im doing mine mint green with white components Nothing looks slicker than that color combo in my humble opinion. Color is something that you should ultimately decide completely on your own. this is where you get to be unique and differentiate your self from the rest of the SS/Fixed world. Good luck!

I"m doing the same thing. Play around with photo shop and get some ideas on how it'll actually look. Just get crazy with it and have fun.

Burgundy is a sophisticated colour for a bike!

Check out olympicpowdercoating.com. They're in Santa Ana, CA, but they have pretty much every color you can think of. I'm sure they take shipments if you don't live in CA.
