Colour scheme for YELLOW 749S...Opinions please...except red owners!!!!

Hello all... Due to the type of emulsion they use at the factory,the paint has been flaking away on my engine crank casing and frame and the lovely people have promised me new bits and bobs. What do you guys and gals think of a suitable colour for the wheels and frame. They are gonna be powder coated in a colour of my choosing. I like the silver but im thinking of maybe changing to black. Any pics greatfully received.........

How olds your bike because your not the first person Ive heard off having to get the engine casings looked at because of flaking paint, Im going to have a look at mine now (warranty runs out in march.)
Wonder if its a common fault ?
Black would be my choice (but then it will look like a rebuilt insurance job so no I would stick to silver.)

Davie,

Link to photos of my frame and wheels done in black from the boys at Duke Glasgow after exactly the same problem on my bike.

Go with the black man it is the dogs in the flesh, was a b1tch to keep clean though.

Got to agree, BLACK is the way to go, satin or gloss, that would be down to you.


Chris.
