    Good job! 1990 or 1992 Santana Moda

    I purchased an unpainted Santana Frame and Fork back in 1990 or 1992. I totally forgot that I had this. Still have the original Columbus MAX tubing decals along with the Sanatana decals, etc. Thinking of having it painted and then building it up. What color do you think I should get it painted ?? The original one that I ever saw in the bike shop that I ordered mine from was a bright NEON Orange Thinking of building it up with a full Suntour XC Pro group that I have. Let me know what you think. God Bless

    Maroon?

    Most of the Modas I've seen were painted a dark red/maroon colour.
    I've seen one or two blue ones as well.

    Sorry no pictures as of yet, as it is just a bare primered frame, the way I purchased it from Santana way back then. What color do you all think would be good for this ??

    Mine was originally neon orange also. Santana did a repaint in metal flake black that looks good. The MBA review bike was metallic blue.

    Sounds like the beginning of a great project.

    Sky is the limit for paint. You can try and mirror a factory option, or go as wild or subtle as you want.
    Decked out in XC Pro, I don't think you can go wrong.

    We're all gonna want to see pictures though.

    I don't normally post unbuilt bikes here, but in this particular case I'm not very motivated to build this one up. I'll let you do the work in your head. Pictures are old and the metallic is hard to discern.
