Need some good color combinations Answered

Got some new wheels for my bike that were dirt cheap..Only problem is I need some good colors that will make the bike look amazing. The rims are yellow and the spokes are black. Help me out. Be creative.

Paint the frame to look like a wasp or yellowjacket.

The frame would look so cool painted hot pink with metal flakes of gold.

LOL.  Suuuuuure it would.  ;)

Red / Yellow / Green.


Search for "complementary colour wheel" on google and the images will show a bunch of combinations.  Pick your favourite colour for the main colour and it will give you the appropriate complements.

There are also contrast wheels...and a few others!

Paint the frame yellow to match the rims, a black saddle, black handlebar grips and a couple of black decals on the frame.
Then set it all off with a pair of chrome or black with a yellow stripe, stubby fenders.

Stick with yellow and black, and do the whole bike as a tribute to 80's Christian hair metal band Stryper. Add a custom seat with the Stryper logo, and a rockin' sound system playing the appropriate tunage, and go down in history as the builder of the most epic tribute bike ever.

Maybe a paint job like a yellow jacket, or perhaps a checkered cab; bonus points for finding a bike light with trim like the old-style chrome headlights.
