Thinking about painting...

Ok So My bike is in my signature and I wanted to paint it. Not sure if I wanna take the time to paint the frame. we have a body shop in the family and I can get it painted for free. Just dont want to be without my bike for more than a day... So Question is what color would go with my silver frame?

im not an expert but i think a deep color goes best with the silver frame either like a navy blue or my friend has a dark red sv650 and it looks sweet!

A family member has a body shop. They're painting it for me. He just said to pick a color. And I know if you bring your stuff here they will paint it for a good price.

+1 to PC the frame first. I have a silver frame on my SV and i hate it everyday, But i dont feel like tearing it down yet again just to paint the frame. But the Suzuki Blue is so clean.

Talked to my cousin. If you bring the parts between $500 and $700. Just sand and paint. Fiberglass work is extra.
