    Happy Sunday!
    I rode my 42 Elgin Tiki cruiser to find a good spot for a snap of the sunrise over Monrovia

    I'm a little tired of the color scheme on my DL1. I rode down to the paint store to check out some swatches. I wasn't able to pin down the color that I want, but I'm thinking something in an eggshell finish! My choices of color are between Putty and Taupe. Or perhaps Mauve and Rustica image.jpeg

    Personally I think it would be better to leave the original paint in tact and paint another bike that has already been painted.
    That bike is worth keeping original in my opinion.

    You can make it any color as long as it's black :-D.

    1942 Columbia VG295 that was used by the US Army in WW2 and sometimes afterwards. Original over spray of early WW2 olive drab with late war top layer. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
