    hey everyone. i am currently working on my winter project. i have stripped down my bike and am rebuilding it from the ground up. the only thing i plan on using from the original build is the frame. its real big.never mind the fact im 6'6 it gives me room for my rt carb. im going single geared and am gonna go with the tophat sprocket adapter. (v brakes suck). any suggestions on the paint scheme would be helpful, it is still kinda bland for my taste. i do however plan on painting my cdi the same green. a neon green plug wire and neon green zipties throughout..... but seriously help..

    Love the green and black. Off the top of my head, you could grind the edges of the fins so the aluminum pops, I doubt they have 'high heat' paint in that colour.

    Green pinstriping on the black parts, and black pinstriping on the green parts?

    ...I bought green fuel line from a Kalifornia NAPA auto parts store... u might ask at a few places in your neck of the woods.
    There is also some company named Helix that makes colored fuel lines but I haven't researched them yet.

    and, I've got some opalized - looking cable, so someone makes that... lol

    I like the GREEN !
    Maybe paint the frame an orange or deep red and do some brown or deep purple striping or flames???

    It's all good!
