I have my orange beater bike. Ride this in the rain to keep my other bike nice and dry. [Image: DSCN0261.jpg]
edit: rebuilt the bike and painted it myself.

Thanks! I was thinking of using orange, and yes the bike has been moved from the train tracks Smile! I'm doing my first bike trip along the CA coast so I want a new paint job

There is a way to fade one color into another but it takes a little patience. Look on you tube and I think there is many videos there.
