Getting ready to start on my 1946 DX project. There's no original paint left. It was stripped to bare metal years ago. I just would like to see some color options. Thanks in advance.

Thanks to all who have posted. They are all great bikes. Definitely inspired me on mine.
Hopefully, we will see more cool bikes.

I have a few DX's from the "Post" era. None of them are original as they were bought as pieces with one exception and it was changed after it came to live here.
We'll start with '46 models that were bare frames:
Blue

Red

And the one that changed after arrival - Black. More changed after this photo, but it gives the idea!

I like black bikes, so this one is kinda "Me"

This is my 1947 Spitfire Motormodel in Pepsi blue. I matched the color off of the inside of a girls horn tank.

Here is the 47's little brother. I took a 55' juvenile bicycle an altered it quite a bit to build a 3/4 scale DX whizzer replica.

This is my 51 Nordap Engine kit on a 47 Spitfire. This was the first bicycle I restored. I painted the bike using rattle can Krylon paint.

Great bikes!!! I absolutely have no problem with repainting. There's no original paint left on my bike. It will be painted. Just trying to decide between black or blue.

Picked up this 47 frame, fork, guard and crank with chainring, built it up like those guys in California! Lol. Rides pretty nice. Joe
