I ordered the white plastics from Tyga and will install them when I get my bike. I'm going to have the other set painted. I've narrowed it down to:

Candy Topaz Orange

Special Silver.

What does the collective think? :D

Can anyone with mad photoshop skillz help a brother out? :motorcyclelove_smil

I have dealt with Throttle Jockey in the past with excellent results and on their website they display a vintage Elsinore graphics kit for modern dirtbikes. I would go for that with the Elsinore silver, green trim, and yellow Honda wings, etc. Your colors would then be historically correct. Just my op.

That's a nice website. I wish I had seen it when I was doing the CRF80. You have a good idea, if I decide to go with the silver.

G19Tony...I bought a CRF80 like 3 months ago and was just beginning to mod it into something more vintage looking. I had started with yellow plates, was going to go nuts...then learned about the Grom. My beginning mods helped me sell it last Thursday. More bonus bucks!

I'm going to sell my 80 also. I have it set up with a taller, adult seat, BBR shock and CRF100 springs. It's also street legal and titled as such. I put a Baja Designs light kit on it. It's fun to blast around the neighborhood. I'm going to sell my Hodaka Dirt Squirt and my steet legal CRF230F also. I have too many bikes for the space I have to store them.

I'm keeping the CRF250L, the Versys and the TU250. I may ride the TU to Iowa and leave it at my Mom's house, so I have a bike to ride when I go back to visit.

I'm really into the pearl white and yellow for some reason. But, considering the limited availability black or red regardless sound great to me! If I can get a bike though I want to do a Pearlescent Pink to dedicate it to my mom having breast cancer and being so strong going through so much chemo and radiation therapy.

Good choice on both of the colors. But really to define the personality of the Grom well, I would have to say stick with the orange. Silver would be just a little on the boring side, well... subtle. Don't forget the grom isn't a boring bike.

And if you want later you can just add on the repsol stickers to change it up ;)

Candy Orange is a 1970's Honda color. That Repsol color isn't close, I don't think.
