You can get chrome powder coating now but it's not quite mirror finish so not perfect, no point in chroming aluminium, just polish it instead and clear coat it, hmm...

I'd do some tone of orange or red the main triangle and the other bits white.

Getting the pearl or metallic to flip with a powdercoat will be expensive.

i would go with one solid colour and leave it at that mate why not match the colour of your current bike

Originally i was going to go with the kawasaki green of the Alpine ;) but i like a change, pearls, translucent and candy's aren't a great deal more than flats, it will be about £70 prepped and painted with a flat colour, don't mind dropping a little more for something i really like!

worried about making it look cheap though ?

I would be wary of anything non factory as it will look a bit weird to me but its not my bike so the final decision rests with you mate

I just bought heliptape from ebay, dont know if there is diff 'brands' available, I tended to buy the cheapest, its all pretty good but does come in lots of different lengths and widths, my frame is about 99% taped up now.

Tip. Decide on what stickers you want to put on first, including the EssexMTB ones..of course :)
