Here is a bike that is currently hanging at Blacksmith Cycle in Toronto. The paint was inspired by the 1980's Marlboro Yamaha Moto GP bikes (also pictured).

I'd been watching F1 and Moto GP on TV for years. I always a huge fan of Wayne Rainey and Eddie Lawson. Having only seen the bikes on TV (1980's TV no less), I assumed the red/orange was regular old red. The first time I went to an actual race and saw the livery in person I was shocked because the red was fluorescent. That moment stuck with me - the excitement of going to my first race, seeing, hearing and smelling all the action. So I thought it would be fun to re-live it in a small way by using the color on one of our frames.

The studio shots don't really show the vibrance of the color, but the motorcycle pics does, and I included a pic of it in my back yard that does. It is an awesome color.
