Well, my Ultimate Bipe was designed with a fantasy sponsorship in mind. My friend did his in a 76 gas station theme vs my Chevron gas station (You guys obviously don't have those in Germany). The point was to be creative with colors and ideas and use our imagination. We can't wait to see what you decide on

I don't have a colour scheme for you, but I wanted to say that your service on the NiMH battery packs for my Graupner Tipsy was great !

Most of the full scale Ultimates I have seen were done in US Corporate sponsorship schemes (1-800-COLLECT and some others). You could do the color scheme that is on the box of the Carl Goldberg Ultimate Bipe. It is a very attractive and easy to see design.

Those were pics from when it was a virgin. Though, I once did tape on a straw sticking up for low passes so I wouldn't create splinters.
