Glowing yellow

I got around to powder coating the rims finally.
I decided to go with glowing yellow as the title says.I was going to use shocker yellow but he had an example and even though it didn't look bad I wanted some things a little different, something that looked a little more like the Suzuki MotoGP colors

Are used a sprocket from supersprox

the color is literally called "glowing yellow" from prismatic powders. In the sun it looks like an anodized neon yellow with a hint of green. I noticed that after putting them on, the blue reflection from the bike makes them look more green. They also make a green version of the color that is distinctly green in comparison.

The overall affect is an anodized appearance and looks a lot like the suzuki casio G-shock motogp watch they sell.

I had the same concerns....im not as young as you might think. I ultimately decided to go bright with the wheels for 2 reasons. 1. I've had several mountain bikes over the years with a similar color scheme (blue with yellow wheels) and I always got compliments on those mountain bikes. 2. My cars tend to have a more subdued aesthetic so my motorcycles tend to bear the brunt of my creative experiments.

I have a complete set of extra wheels and breaks....Im contemplating having that set done in an anodized blue....but I fear that may be too much blue.

I started off with 1 blue and 1 yellow wheel (Don't ask why, seemed like a good idea at the time) but now they are both yellow and I think the yellow looks much better.

I hope my post didn't come across as condescending ....as I am somewhat of a wild color scheme guy myself. If nothing else ,brilliant colors are highly visible on bikes ...and being well seen is a good thing. Hey , I still use my Shwantz racer replica helmet from time to time and it is anything but bland in color. One of the reasons I bought a white bike this time around is I intend to use it as a blank canvas once I figure out which direction I'll take it with a accent color scheme. Enjoy your creative experiments.

Is it a pain to remove everything to have the wheels painted?

That's truly hideous. I can't understand why people want to paint a nice looking bike in ugly colours. They should have just bought an MT-10 where Yamaha did it for them at the factory.

Don't be so vague Jim and just come out and say what you really think.
