    What Colors Would Look Good On A Gold Schwinn Homegrown

    For those of you out there that care to help out...
    I Feel Like Changing Things Up a Bit...
    It is hard to match colors to a Gold Anodized frame. Most colors other than black and red look really weird on the frame.

    I have tons of bikes and a [email protected] load of parts piled up in my basement over the years..

    I am going to run 1x9 drive line and 8" disc brake up front and 6" in the rear...
    I dont know If I want a colorful build or something plain, but everythign will be anodized...

    Im Thinking about going with a Purple, Red, Gold and Black theme...

    Previously It was Black, Red, and Gold.

    My Bike Previously looked like this...


    Full M960 XTR Group, Red Chris King hubs.


    Now It kind of looks like this...




    Looks a bit missmatched right now since I jsut tore it down and tossed some random parts on it.

    Various color options that I can not decide on...

    Red Pauls Rear deraileur w/ turquoise pullies. Long cage.
    Black Precision Billet Rear deraileur w/ purple pullies Short cage.

    Red Race Face Turbine LP Cranks.
    Red Kooka Cranks.
    Red, Yellow, & Green (Rasta) Kooka Cranks.
    Purple Cook Brothers Cranks.
    Silver, Black, Red, Or Purple Chainring bolts.

    Purple ISO Chris King. Black Spokes, rims, and nipples.
    Red ISO Chris King. Black Spokes, rims, and nipples.

    Red Ringle Skewers.
    Purple skewers.

    Titanium WTB HandleBar.
    Easton Carbon HandleBar.

    Red Kooka Stem.
    Turquoise Ringle stem.
    Purple Ringle Stem.

    Red Paul Brake Levers.
    Silver Paul Levers.
    Silver & Blue Avid Levers

    Ti Egg Beaters.
    Crupi Square Pedals with purple cage.

    TI Syncros Seat Post
    Black Syncros Post
    Pink Ringle Post
    Silver Ringle Post

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated, I can post pics of the components for color contrasts.

    On a side note...
    Anyone looking for one of these bikes?

    Its a Manitou HT HardTail from years ago, said to be one of the best hardtails around...It has not been ridded for 7 years, no problems or cracks looks almost new with some sticker flaking. I prefer riding my homegrowns...

    Thanks For the Help...

    Yeah, I like the black, but winters comming and got bored, wanted to change it up a bit.

    The blue one is not forsale. The green one could be for the right price. It is a SweetSpot Pre 99 so it has a much higher metal flake look.
