Choosing a colour

Post by corkdragon » Sat Feb 25, 2012 8:33 pm

Hi everyone,
Due to the tank rusting under the current paintwork (see pic), I am organising to get bike reprayed properly - well the tank, tailpiece and front mudguard -- as not only do I find the blistering unslightly, I don't want to leave it too long - I am taking part in my first charity bike run weekend in May.
So on my log book/tax, her colour is "black" and as ya see last owner changed that! :roll:

So a few ideas I'm playing around with is:
> black with a fleck going through it (maybe dark blue/purple)
> Red again
> dark Blue

Now I am a girl - but not a girlie girl! not a fan of overly bright colours! So would like to hear yer points of view - especially as cb400sf owners.
thank you :)

I think a Cadburys type of purple would look good with silver or white pinstripe :peace:

Dark blue metallic with maybe some subtle pinstriping could look cool.

Sorry for delayed reply - I tend to get distracted easily lately! Between organising charity raffle and prepping for the chairty motorcycle run - heads all over the place! So - sorry bout the delay. Well, I got her resprayed at the end of March and to say I'm delighted with result is an understatement!
According to her tax book she should have been black - so since that is my favourite colour, I chose to go back to it with a blue fleck going through it. Thing is the sprayer found out she was in fact - originally silver. And the previous owner did a bad job in the primer layer (hence rust on tank!). So here she is now! In two minds should I leave the red rim tape on the wheels/clocks.
