    Similar greens but Choke's may be slightly more metallic, the other one I think we use in the Team 7-Eleven paint scheme.

    Steve, mine is metallic for sure but I thought it was the green from the 7-Eleven bikes....it's PPG 47639.

    That is old-school amazing - I love that bike! The Paul brakes are the icing on the cake.
