Do what you want. By the way, Kara's LD is pink (she calls it salmon). It has plenty of admirers from both genders.

The only problem I see with pink is that if you want to sell it later it will be harder to get the price you want. Otherwise, go crazy!

Pink is a great color. Ive seen scenics do different variations of pink for film.

Some pinks can go grey and others almost cotton candy.

None of these are pink, but variations of.

You know you're absolutely right Rufio... I looked deep into my heart and realised I and possibly others here have been guilty of double standards. So therefore I'm starting a collection to buy you some nice pink paint for the Lammie.

For reference, my VBB is almost teal:

yes for sure you will meet me. I went to a rally back in 2008 and it was a blast. I had a pink scooter back then. However guys I am looking into other options. I am thinking about the choice of paint I am going to make. I want ti to look good and still have a racer type look.

I really like teal when done right and it looks good on this scoot. I am seriously considering a teal. I however still would like to find out what colors were original to the cafe racers. I don't want to do black because my car is black I want it to stand out.

Well, I can tell you my VBB gets noticed because of the color. Is not the original VBB color but the VNB (125 CC) color for the same year. It was a choice made because it was easy to find and reproduce the VNB color (Grigio Celeste Chiaro; MaxMeyer 1,298,8840) rather than the VBB (Azzurro metallizato) but, in the end, I like it and it reflects a color of that period.

I don't like the typical 'Barbie' pink either, but how about a pink that Piaggio might have used back then? I'm thinking a metallic paint with the same feel and tone as Dr.Ona's lovely scoots at the bottom... I reckon the colour below is subtle enough to make it look almost age-correct.

LoL you guys wont get rid of me that easy just because of a little discussion and disagreement on the color pink! Really! In the words of Steven Tyler pink is more then just a color! Laughing emoticon Laughing emoticon I however agree with some and disagree with others. I do love pink but looking at some of the scoots in pink they just dont fit. I want to be involved in every aspect of this and if i paint the thing white with big freaking rainbows on it that choice will be mine. But I am seriously leaning toward a teal or lime green! Racer style boy!

I love pink however looking more and more at the scoot and seeing some parts that look as though they are original paint. I have seriously thought this over. Once we get it all ready to go she will be a nice sky blue or a pale blue.
I have seen some of the parts that look like they have original paint on them and it seems that this baby was blue so she is getting her blue back. More updates to come yep yep!
