what is the exact color of the bike? love the mix with silver.

charlie says:

TIGER Drylac powdercoat "Sparkle Granny Smith" green. it's a two-stage dormant powdercoat that, because of the way the two stages interact, looks deep and glossy like paint does. Tiger is a huge powder supplier so they should be available through many industrial coat suppliers.

Thanks! The only thing I like more than taking pictures of bikes is --riding bikes--!!! I was attempting mad wheelies yesterday; there is photographic evidence. I will work on obtaining it.

I envy this color... My leader is the closest I think I'll get to such a nice green color.
