(Whatever you do, just try to avoid introducing different shades of yellow or red to what's already there.)
Yup going for the Red same shade as the R on the bodywork

Thanks for all the suggestions, rearsets going silver too there's too much going on with the gold. Should all come together nicely

Can't believe someone has actually gone with a suggestion I had on styling!

You should see some of the abominations I've had over the years.

Fingers crossed you're happy with the end result.

You're not instilling much confidence in the outcome

Before and after with the part silver/gold rearsets instead of solid gold

Pulled out of the paint job last minute couldn't decide between red and gold

One of the reasons that one looks so well is because it has a black swing-arm and fork legs - they set off the gold rims well.

With the silver on yours, it will look fairly different. It's often the little details that make or break a look. Just sayin'..
