What color to use for my build?

So I have been researching what color to use for all my accent pieces. Red, Blue, and Black seem to be quite popular, I just can't do pink, purple, or orange. I was thinking somewhere between bronze and platinum to match the handlebars, but sourcing those items has been problematic due to scarcity and variance in anodizing shades. I also think the color may just be lost among the bling. There is my conundrum.....

I would like to see some votes on color schemes. Throw in your ideas!

Re: What color to use for my build?

Yes....yes, they do! Can you shoot me a pic of the cable? What do you think, anno nipples or stock brass nipples? I'm thinking I should keep the wheels as stock as possible....

Re: What color to use for my build?

I think I have a "chrome" Peregrine Cosmic outer cable housing that would look good on that. I'll have to check when I get home. Call me boring, but I'd likely do black or silver for the remainder of parts.

"That LiL Holeshot I built a couple years ago that took Best Mini was a nice bike, but I'll bet most people didn't even see the greatest thing about it. The frame and fork was in awesome condition, and when I started to build it I found residue of car wax in the welds. That means at one time long ago some little kid enjoyed that bike so much that he sat and stared at it while he waxed it to perfection. That's the kinda stuff I appreciate, and can relate to very well."  John De Bruin-6/21/09
