    Anyone really want to post a Yellow or Blue Flux/Spot/RFX

    I'm sure I'm being a bit of a pain. I've just got to see some good pics of the Yellow and Blue powedercoat colors- please!

    I saw a yellow in a post (along with a green) but it looked like the pic was enlarged and there was some splotchiness to it.

    This will all be worth it and you guys like posting pics of your bikes anyway. I've seen some large and clear pics of the grey, black, green, and red but the blue and yellow remain. Thanks for the help and happy 50th to Fo.

    Holy Mother!! That color looks hot. It would be such a close call between that and the Green.

    Here I was thinking that the Yellow was the Turner PC (Speedo Yellow). The Turner Yellow is probably a brighter shade.

    That is the stock PC Yellow from Turner. 2005 model. It's not mine, it is my friend's. We both decided we wanted spots at the same time so I ordered a black and he ordered a yellow. That is his build.

    Here is my Yellow Pack/RFX (used to be Grey) - although, she wasnt painted from Turner - our local painter here did the job for me - she looks better in person though, kind of a real pale/light shade of yellow sealed in with clearcoat & Chrome Turner decals...

    EndoRando- that is a beautiful blue. Do you know if Turner still makes the same blue in their custom colors? It looks the same or very close but I prefer the black decals on the blue. The white decals don't have the same effect.

    I'm not sure if this powdercoated version is available any more or not. The Turner website lists the same non-stock color options for the Flux, Spot, and RFX, and blue is one of them, but it may only be offered in anodized treatments. Not sure, but a quick phone call to Jarrett will answer that.

    Mine originally came with light grey decals, and I wasn't too fond of them either. My original Turner was polished with the black logo, and the black just stuck with me. I've done the same with my white Pack, the logo just seems to "pop" compared to the outlined letters.

    If you're leaning towards blue, and the powdercoat isn't available any more, I have to admit the blue ano really looks sharp. I've seen it in person and much prefer it to the lighter blue I have. If I was in the market for a new Spot these days, that would be my choice no doubt. Check out Darren's pdf for installing the PUSH rockers, there's a ano blue Spot in the photos.

    In the end you'll learn to live with whatever color, you're not looking at it when you're riding!

    If you click the link I posted above, you will see the powdercoat options for 2006. The blue looks very similar to your blue. I bet it's the same. Where did you get the black Turner decal though?

    TS, I would contact Olympic PC in Santa Ana, CA. They will know excatly what number that yellow color is on the '05. It is darker than the "new" Turner yellow which is a brighter shade of yellow.

    I had them made locally at a sign shop, but I have seen them on ebay. There's a guy in Canada that cuts them for a reasonable price, handle is 302zapper.

    Here's a couple just to show how the black logos appear in a natural setting. First one is with Nels last Oct at the start of a Gooseberry ride with Team Sanchez. Next one is my Pack from last week here in Alaska.
