What's the strangest colour ?
« on: January 23, 2012, 02:26:04 AM »
Our 180 Joyride is currently silver-grey, but my wife wants it changing to purple ( most likely shade is the colour used on the mk2 Ford Cortina 1600E )...

So two questions :

1. Has anyone painted their Joyride ? Is it difficult to get all the panels off and to prepare them for painting ?

2. What is the strangest colour you have seen on a scooter ?

Happy Joyriding !

You'd need to get the decals from a dealer first, then take the panels to a paint shop for a decent job.
I think they all unscrew fairly easily!

Silver looks good on them, a nice bright silver - it contrasts well with the blacks.

The plan is to do away with the decals... And I have no problem painting the panels myself ( I have painted a fair number of bits of bike in the past )
