    Pimp 'Zilla's ride!

    The man needs your help, in his own words;
    " I do have a color in mind, prolly go with my gut feeling. As much as I want to, I will resist the urge to have two red bikes.

    Sooo, it's gotta be something that'll contrast all the gold trim I'm pulling off my Spot...It's gotta stand out and it can't be black, I work in NYC, we invented black.

    Right now my 1st choice is a rich deep very sparkly green... if Olympic has it.(Then all these hawt green bikes started showing up.) I was thinking of something funky like a fade or flames from Spectrum but they're pretty expensive.

    Hmmm I can always repaint it next off-season if I just can't live w/o red.

    Okay I'm waffling but my gut tells me if not red then green. Your mission should you decide to accecpt, is to convince me otherwise by EOD "

    We've got till the end of today to help our friend choose his bling color for his new RFX. All suggestions will be considered, even clown-crap tuesday types. Post your suggestion here.

    Green was cool until it became the new black.

    Did anyone see the finish on this Id

    I have an image in my mind of the person that invented this finish.

    I still say a gold dust copper or root beer brown color would be sweet with all the gold accents.

    8004 - 8014- 8028 all look like good candidates

    My second suggestion [since you didn't bite on the snakeskin finish] is a two tone fade. Now I know you said no black, but what if it was a fade with gold? The pic below is just a visual aid, imagine your headtube, toptube/seattube junction, and bottom bracket are black, and the top tube, seat tube, and down tube are bling gold?



    That way, all your bling components are againt's a black background, where they would look hawt.

    Third suggestion would be a slightly lighter shade of green than the current anodized RFX's have, something a little darker than this:



    Or a green with a major sparkle finish to it.

    I happen to think a lavender-fuscia fade would match his eyes.

    Soulcraft colours rock!

    http://www.soulcraftbikes.com/id40.htm

    My new Spot will be one of these colours if I can swing it. I'll post a pic if no one guesses which it'll be. I believe Sycip do the paint for Soulcraft.

    The Soulcraft Orange looks a lot like SSINGA's

    So Rene is instigating again in a positive way. Those cranks are the old Kooka cranks aren't they? I remember jonsing for those in a big way Till I heard they had the strength of peanut brittle. That gold DHR is screaming! I bet it looks awesome in person. Sadly I can't use my gold trim on it...Overgold is the number one killer of pimps worldwide.

    The Uzi SL is very close to Tonyaccuso's (sp?) Sasquach Spot. Nice. A little darker might look good with my kit.

    I keep thinking that Snakeskin finish has GOT be TE's personal bike.

    I might try a cammo look for next year. The reason I've never opted for a bright frame color is that alot of my local trail riding encroaches on private land. I like to be discreet in those situations.

    Translation:


    Loud colors might hamper my poaching.

    I'm selective about where I poach! Really. I scope it out carefully. Most of the times it's my neighbors. That makes it somewhat incestuous, doesn't it?

    That blue looks very much like the blue turner SSINGA's wife owns, that he calls his.

    The blue on the XCE in MY garage has a metallic flake in it.


    Hey Zilla, how about a metallic purple?

    I say 'Zilla calls up Ellsworth and asks if they can do one of their ano jobs on his Turner.

    Should make for an interesting call.
