I am getting my frame and a arms powder coated soon and I am having a hard time deciding which color. I photoshopped a few examples. The one with the orange grille and seat, is just an idea.

Also, I have been told that while taking your frame to get powder coated you should have it acid dipped vs. sandblasted. Any tips?

Blue or Green. But adding a graphics kit that matches the color you choose would make it way cooler.

I like a bright orange (like KTM orange) because it contrasts nicely with black. Otherwise what about an all black frame?

Wow, the poll is incredibly close. I am not going to decide based solely on the poll or anything, but I was hoping to eliminate one color! Orange is my personal favorite color. The blue was the one I was leaning AGAINST because I don't want anyone to think I took an older 660 and put the newer plastic on it.

I am also noticing a pattern. Everyones replies match their quads! haha

I vote satin black. Like you mentioned its hard not to pick one like your own.

I need a newer pic of mine finished but here is what I did.

Oh and I had mine bead blasted not sure of the negative effect. Any reason you where told acid dip is better then bead blast? They will both remove a little surfacemetal and the blasting will be like mini shot peening and remove some residule stress from the drawn tube which might help prevent cracking.
