    ^^This^^

    I'm a big fan of black everything's.
    I have a rattle can flat black Cadex SS with orange rims and orange Magura HS-33's, and a glossy black Karate Monkey with green rims, grips and some other small parts that are green.
    And my Pugsley (that is now crippled) was going to be flat black with some glossy black parts.
    I think a majority of flat black with a dash of glossy is a perfect way to create a fully murdered out bike and still atract attention to the finer details.

    I'm not a fan - it resembles what people do to crappy cars to make them look somewhat less crappy and in the end make them look like silly high-school disasters.

    To me, that is. I try not to judge though. If that's your thang, that's your thang.

    Another foolish statement.

    Hah but that's the point. That actually serves a purpose. In the case of the Lambo and Civic, it's just someone with questionable taste.

    Don't be angry about it. As I said, I don't judge. I just find it hilarious and tacky. My opinion only.

    By you "finding it hilarious and tacky" you are judging. Just interesting a person who finds it "hilarious and tacky" joined in on the thread where people are posting their bikes, they like.

    Behold... one of only three sets of silver Titec H-Bars on the planet (as far as I know). Oh, the other two are on my other bikes. :D

    Gotta love the EZ-Off.

    I thought this thread was revived from the dead at first. There is an old one with nearly an identical title. If you want an all black bike that's fine but this "murder out" term needs to die its own quick death.

    i think an all matte black bike (or car or anything else) can look really good if it's done tastefully.

    for that matter, an all olive drab MTB/flat black accents bike would be a pretty cool look as well.

    this coming from a man who rides a bright blue bike sporting neon yellow brake levers that could be spotted on a moonless night a mile and a half away...

    So, you are saying that the owner should have restored the exterior with white paint sorta thing... It is not like the car was showroom nice when they decided to go matte black with it. Most likely it looked terrible before the matte was applied.

    Personally, I would never matte black a car fwiw....but that Lambo above...yep! Love it.

    "groovy" and "far out" were also around for a while, but we murdered those terms just fine. ;)

    I used to murder out my bikes but cracks are just too hard to spot on black frames. Light colors from now on.

    Don't get me wrong, I love all black bikes, though I would go with touch of red if I ever go this way... (I understand it wouldn't be murdered, but I love my bike alive and kicking :thumbsup: ) but this is a silly argument. This is not a fashion statement, stealth planes are matte black with reason :D

    But if I only buy black bikes, my wife doesn't notice them come and go, or if I add to the stable. If I got asked "is that a new bike?" my answer was "This bike? I've had a black bike forever." It was carefully constructed to not be a lie, and not admit that it's new bike.
