what do you mean? what do you want to restore?
I think the colour depends on the bike, for example, if I would restore a Yo Eddy, I would do it in

1- aquamarine fade
2- grello
3- banana yellow

And a wicked or monster in black and a buck shaver in red and...

But nowadays who is doing (and can) the paint job in aqua fade or grello?

I had written a long winded request to have members post their favorite color rides...

I know the cliche colors i probably own or have owned most...but rarely have I seen a cosmic dust, sapphire fade, leslies purple, orange etc...I wish all of the colors were in one place...

same with the one off customs, and art pieces

This site can be somewhat cumbersome to find and view basic stuff like colors, components and the like.

Not trying to diss on the sight, it's been a great source of entertainment for me...but it gets tiring going through 1000s of posts.

same thing when it comes to catalogues, I have to go to retrobike or some german site vs this one. Their sites are incomplete, missing 1989, 1991, 1997, and 1998 cats.

if i go to MOMBAT for specs, I want to pull whats left of my 50 year old head of hair out, based on the inaccurate and incomplete data.

What did you figure out ? The frame registry would be good for this would it not?
