    Default Spooky Color - is this production? Cause bass boat gold is cool...

    I saw this on the spooky yfrog thing-a-ma-bob:



    Is that a production color? Or would one have to special order it?

    FYI I'm a fan of bass boat blue bikes as well.

    Looks more like Raleigh International gold than bass boat gold.

    I believe that it says on their site that singles custom colors are $100. So yes and no to answer your question.

    I think TRuss is right. They have a couple of choices of ano colour or an upcharge if you want something different.

    I think they've got a grey this year which should look pretty nice.

    That bike has a silver basecoat with translucent brass coat over the top. It also has a pearlescent wet clear on top of the stickers(cuz tiny vinyl stickers don't stick onto a little tube).

    Pigment Pricing:
    Stock bike
    - Ano(n/c)
    -Powder $150
    -"Special Effects" powder( pearlescents, candy, leatherette, etc) $180

    Made-to-measure:
    -Single color powder n/c
    -Special effects +$60
    -Ano- not available at this time.

    Powdercoat comes in a few thousand colors, but we only have a few hundred to choose from, especially on the special-effects end.
    Fancy-pants wet paint is a lot more money. The more pigments and stuff you try to suspend in that paint the more it's going to cost.

    Does anyone know if bass boat paint jobs are prone to chipping- I always loved the homegrown bikes and their paint jobs but I remember some flaking from their jobs....

    My bassboat gold/black 99' Factory Homegrown never had any flaking issues circa 2004-2005.
