Thanks for the input. Your point is well taken that a lot of people may actually like the hot pink color, especially if the chainguard was painted to match. I'll certainly give that some thought.
I want to keep my Stingray collection in tact - at least until I get them all restored.

I wouldn't repaint it, that color is awesome, heck I will buy it off of you for $40 and you can double your money ; )
