Re: best color for a pocket bike

It depends on what Color you like and what kinda "Goodies" you have on your bike that will determine what color looks good...

Re: best color for a pocket bike

In my opinion I say blue looks the best with all the nice crome stuff but still it's choice on what you think looks the best.

Re: best color for a pocket bike

I choose to go with the brightest colour so you'll be seen from far away and people can catch your attention with what a nice bike you have. Having black bikes looks pretty much the same to others. To me, the black is the worst colour for my bike. Stock, solid black. From far, it looks shiney, coming close up, you can see all the scratches and stuff. Like have you guys ever cleaned your bike with a cloth for about 4-5 times and after you see tiny scracthes? That's what I really hate, also, dust and the cotton from your cloth will be seen on the black bike. I hate that. That good thing about black bikes are that they blend in anything what you wear, and what stickers you put on it. Having yellow, or a red bike is the best. Black bikes owners, don't you guys hate those little scratches from cleaning it?

Re: best color for a pocket bike

ha if your complaining about scratches and body work you should see my bike. I got such a big scratch from sliding that all you can see is the plastic's original colour. I probably have a bunch of little scratches, the stupid stickers i tried to get off that came with the bike left those glue marks and then to make matters worse i took sand paper to get them off which faded the paint. Some of my metal parts are rusted (stupid cheap metal) from riding in the winter except i sanded it off and it was no major parts. My gas cap cracked and my foam glue on seat that came with the bike is ripped and it's not easy to find the old replacement seats. I really don't care that much though because my bike still runs perfectly and is meant more for racing. I'm still learning and i know there will be alot more scratches to come so there is no real point of getting or painting fairings. The only part for looks i'm probably going to get is a new gas tank cap and maybe make a new seat.
