Frame Color Opinions Please

Decided to tear everything down and paint/powder coat the frame and swinger on my pos. Plastics are black. I was thinking of maybe a darker silver frame and leaving the swinger black...
frame

Here are the plastics.

dude thanks for posting this. i was just talking about taking the 50 apart and painting the frame & swingarm. is it hard to dissassemble a 50? i'll prolly go the rattle can route. gonna go for a bright red frame and swingarm so it matches the big bike. leaving the forks gold. keep us posted.

Super easy. First time ever touching a bike of any kind. Took no time with tools. I am going to finish the tear down tonight. I imagine assembly will be a little more time consuming.
