    Cool-blue Rhythm Beautiful paintjobs

    What's a frame without a handsome paintjob right? I'm thinking about painting my FS frame using KTM color scheme (black, orange, little bit of white). What do you think?
    Show me your favourite color schemes and paintjobs.

    Beauty is surely in the eye of the beholder! That paintjob is butt ugly. The colors are decent but the lines and shapes do nothing for that bike.

    Beautiful paintjobs-orange-jamis.jpgHave to agree with the above.. I like black and orange but really don't like those orange stripes.. I do like this Jamis.
    When you've seen someone rupture their scrotum on a bike you won't take the standards for top tube clearance lightly!

    I could spend hours looking at Vanilla's paint jobs. This one above isn't my particular favorite, that's simply too hard of a choice to make.

    Good call Jason, the paint and details on Vanilla/Speedvagen bikes are erection inducing. Eric Baar at Ground Up Speed Shop is killing it too with his hand-painted base colors, graphics and pinstripes. His paintjobs go on some amazing frames as well, he has over 1,000 frames under his belt so he has the experience to back up the beautiful paint.

    Me too!
    And I've been painting cars for 42 yrs. I know when someone puts passion into their work and the effort it takes.

    This is pretty cool from NAHBS











    While maybe not the most amazing application of paint, I did think that this was very creative.

    We'd fail as bike nerds without acknowledging one of the masters.
