Cheers, i think your bike is brilliant! crazy.. but brilliant! You should go for it, black and yellow would like nice, anything a bit different is good.

why thank you! im thinking black for the main frame and yellow for the sub frame. or the other way around. and most engine parts i would probably do black.

Yea, black frame, with yellow sub frame would look nice. Do black engine parts with the lettering in yellow... that would be sweet.

Have a look at my photos, the lettering was all done with silver powder coat. I'm not 100% sure but i think they bake the base color first and once that has cured put the second color on the letters only. Then its baked again, then on with the clear coat.
