During the winter I'm going to repaint my bike frame from the flat black to something that'... well different. I would like some ideas. It has to go with my Highlighter blue shadow parts, and the teal wall tires(tons of life left, so no point getting rid of them yet.
Here's a pic of my bike, so give me some ideas. The fork and bars won't be painted. I'm only doing the frame.

Some kind of bright pearly white.
or you could sand it down to the metal and throw a clear coat on it, make it look like the "raw" frames they sell.

Is Montana the "professional grade" graffiti paint? I think I've heard of it before.

White would be nice, but hard to get even, I'm a terrible painter:oops:
Do a dark blue, you shouldn't be able to see any mess ups in the paint unless you get close up. Painting it teal would just be overkill in my opinion..

I had my bike raw for the longest time. Rails just beat up my paint so I stopped caring.

Edit: You need two more pegs

There's no way I'd be able to grind on the left hand side. I tried it out and just about died. The only grinds I can do are feeble, smith, and double pegs. Lol I'm not that good :lol:

I know how you feel about the bike taking beating. This is the bike I learned how to grind on(I rode a 26" before this) and my right side chain stay has a few dents and the paint is gone.

I've always wanted to build a matte black bike with gold pinstriping. Maybe in this case, matte black with teal pinstriping/designs?

edit_ Something like this: http://www.nonlintec.com/allegro/

It's a bike. Just ride it.

I never got the kids that would buy new parts when they didn't need them. Like a new color would come out and they would have to buy it. My bike was mostly recycled things form kids like that.

Lol I'm not buying new parts. I'm just painting the frame cause I'm bored of black. I'm probably only going to ride for another year before I give it up though.
