I'm thinking of powder coating a couple of old frames, but what colour? :?
I,ve been looking at this colour chart and am still undecided.

    Well, for primary colours I like:

    RAL 3020 traffic red - with yellow (or white) decals
    RAL 6032 signal green - with white decals
    RAL 5012 light blue - with white decals
    RAL 4006 traffic purple - with white or yellow decals

    Obviously there are so many variations on the RAL chart, but those are my favs

    I think you can't go wring with any of these, black and white are OK, but if you're going to jazz up an old frame, do it in style... ;)

    Triple S did mine in boring white to reflect my personality but they also do metallics, candies and fluorescents.

    Like a Posties bike, or MacDonalds?!

    i normally have trouble deciding what to eat for breakfast, but after having a look at the charts, quite like the violet blue, signal blue and grey blue (they all look v similar to me)

    on off the peg bikes, one of my favourite schemes is the new trance x advanced

    Stick your 'rules' up your a%se
  • Go for a dark frame, then have anodised parts. Much more fun.

    Black and white. Or white and black. Or some ersatz combination of the 2.
