Hi everyone
I've chosen the bike that i will hopefully be attaching a motor to, it's a komda (Chinese) folding bike.

Well, right now it's sitting in my room in pieces because I've decided to paint it.
I'm having trouble deciding what paint scheme i should choose, I've narrowed it down to a military theme (flat green with all chrome painted flat black) or a hot rod theme (flat black, with red rims). I'm leaning towards the military theme, but i'd like to get some more opinions
thanks

What ever you do invest some money in the paint job, I shaker caned (spray paint) my bike after priming the frame and it has started to peal. I would recomend a powder coat, or some other more official paint job. A dark navy blue would look good too.:)

Florescent orange for safety and BLING!

But really,it's a cool bike,but to try to give that bike a cool paint job,flat just brings it to the dull masses.

FLASH it to the world. Florescent is FABULOUS!

Well, i have to admit that i started painting it a couple days ago.
I chose the military theme, and i have to say i'm quite pleased with my choice.:D
I just used some rustoleum paint, it hasn't let me down yet.
I'm towards the end of my assembly, i'll post a picture when it's done.

flat just brings it to the dull masses.

I've seen hundreds of fluorescent bikes, nothing says custom like flat paint.
Not that i have anything against bright colors (i painted my truck bright orange :cool:)

Looks great, 4doora! After I voted 'flat black', I almost posted and said that the green would look equally cool. Nice job!
