    Color scheme poll

    I am trying to make a push to wrap my bike this spring. While painting is only part of the troubles I have I want to nail the goal.

    It will be rattle can job. Currently the frame is silver - generally pretty good needs some rust cleared on the swing arm and around it.

    Here are the choices. Try to see past the less than awesome photoshop job on the frame etc. And keep in mind that its a small bike.

    And the nominees are:

    1. Black frame with Red/White tank.


    2. White frame with Red/White tank.


    3.Silver frame, white tank, red fenders.


    4. Black frame, red tank - classic XR colors


    5. MR50 colors, silver tank w red accent and fenders.


    6. MR50 with Geeto's tweaks

    #5 but with a white frame and white replacing the silver.

    if you are going to rattle can it stick to non metallic colors.

    #4 - If your using a rattle can, then your best bet is stick with the basics. I like Geeto's recommendation but a white frame is very hard to keep clean, especially if you go off road.

    Well tastes seem to be close to what I was leaning towards. Basically 2 & 3 were my favorites. 2 is more or less what Geeto suggested but with different graphics. 3 is very close to what Unga suggests.

    I definitely like the lighter colored frames - black will make the bike look smaller. I do like #3 or UngaWunga's suggestion for feeling a bit more stock-gone-sport with more mashup. #2/#6 look more classy but also feel a bit too trying to be elegant. The #6 tank graph can look better on the picture here than in nature - the tank is pretty wide so it will not have that nice red backbone feel as the picture from this angle suggests.
