i do not know why, but Yeti, that paint is pretty sweet. I'm not a big fan of custom paint, but that thing looks factory....in a late 80's Miami Vice kind of way. Nice job.

Yeti for the win, weirdest/coolest paint scheme I've seen in awhile! Goes great with the rainbow cans.

Thanks for the compliments and the support

All great looking bikes again this month. And I have to agree with the above, Yeti's does look sweet and the rainbow cans really makes the bike look like a complete package.

Good luck to all who've entered.

Looking good ! I really dig the paint Yeti and " the Kid " put together for her build... It is the complete package as mentioned and looks trick and entirely unique, you most likely will not see another like that !

Adam, that is a sweet scenic pic !

My vote goes to James as well, he has got quite a bit of my own handwork on his bike with the Sato cans and the first ever red kevlar / carbon snorkel for the RC51.

Well put together bike and it is really the only red paint scheme I have seen on on RC I like.
Cheers James.

I voted for James too. Although Yeti's bike is nice looking and I can appreciate this is a girl's bike, the colours don't do much for me. James' is so well done it could also be of original factory colours. Well thought out discreet details & improvements too.
