    I own an ORANGE Scooter!

     Well she finally arrived after nearly three months of waiting - ! A little bewdy to keep the GTS company! As I have been riding the GTS around for a while she felt a bit tiny at first to hop on - but with willing heart and tons a grunt we up and rode the 100km ride home together. Got a BDouble behind us on the old road at one point so we were polite enough to let that pass! hehe...a pie at PITs on the way and tons of twisties to get the eye in.

    As she is a bit of a "ranga" I parked her a bit away from the other girl in the garage so there would be no scraps - but they seem to go well together now and I choose equally between them when it is time to get out there again and get the wind in my ...helmet!

    Now what is the real name for that colour?????

    PITS Orange

     Now,goodness knows how you say it in italian,but i would bet money on it being called "agent orange",a dulux colour from around the holden torana era{75-77 lx a9x or l34}.

    And as pete says,what a shame they don,t do a 250gts in itSad,but hey there is always a spray gun?,hmm food for thoughtBig Smile,maybe young dozer could give it a go via his fantastic photoshop skills?Big Smile

    Red ones always go faster but blue ones go pretty quick , but now blue ones are the way to go😄

    Yes

     

     Very skillfull pete,i forgot that you would also be very good with stuff like photoshop.

    That orange really suits the 250 hey,although i still think that i would have "electric blue" off 02 mini,a simple lightish blue metallic,looks good in all lights,can be filthy dirty but dosen,t really show it,dosen,t seem to highlight scratches etc like some colours,but that is only my preference.

    Back to serious stuff,my research so far is telling me that painting a 250 completely-inside and out is in fact not a very difficult task at all,so i am thinking--how soon can one be got into production?Big Smile

     I like the thought and I wish the 250's/300's were available in some of the LX colours.

    Are the front guard and side trims painted the body colour or moulded in the plastic?

    Even different countries seem to get different paint schemes
