Hey guys trying to find out what color or powder number the team bikes from 99 used. I got a Nick wey bike that I am restoring and someone spray bombed with black rattle can and the frame was cracked so I am having it welded and am going to have it re powder coated. Any help is appreciated.

Hahaha touche! This is the bike when my buddy owned it before it dissapeard for a few years. It looked pretty sad when I got it. Story behind the bike is it was actually a bike that Ricky Carmichael was given for a race win and when Nick won Millville he wanted a bike and Mitch said no so Ricky's Mom said you got a bunch from that year why dot you give it to him. So this was owned by nick and ricky

Olympic powder coating in Southern California is the shop that used to coat PC's bike frames in the flo green. I recommend asking them if you want the exact answer. Mark was very helpful when I was asked about getting my frames done.

We were hoping you would just tell us what Mark said so we all don't have to keep asking the same question... "What's the flo green code used on the Splitfire bikes?". I am interested in their service, but it would cost a bit to ship it back and forth. I'd rather just get the powder and have it done locally- near the Sacramento area.

I just dropped a 98 KX125 frame off at the powder coater here in Saint Louis and have the exact same question. I will reach out to Gemtech and see if I can get an answer too and post the reply here

So I talked to Pro Circuit first, who did not have any records of the actual powder coat code, but did confirm that it was Olympic Powder Coating that did the frames for PC (which you guys already knew). Olympic is out of business but is now owned by Gemtech. I called Gemtech and told them my story and they said they did not retain any records from Olympic but she did have the original powder coat samples from their 90's/early 2000 run.

She offered to send me the green samples so we could try to decide which one it was and then would have the powder coat color code to reference. I am going to send her a UPS call tag (since I am nowhere near California to go look in person) and have her mail me the samples and will share with this group.

Samples are on the way from California to here in Saint Louis. I will chime back in as soon as they arrive and we can all try to figure out which one looks like the right one

Good man, Anaxdlere. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Thanks!

I wonder if the flo green, "neon 1221", will be the same as I found...

The colors came in today. Looks like there were two colors to choose from. The fluorescent green appears to be the obvious one. It doesn’t have the code on the back of it so I have to call them tomorrow to get the code associated with it.

that pic didn't really show the contrast due to lighting. This one looks a little better to show the brightness of the fluorescent green. Still waiting to hear back about what the actual code is associated with it.

Looks good. Yes, hopefully you can get the code. I would like to get it done locally instead of shipping a heavy frame back and forth. Thanks.

Got a hold of Gemtech. They said it is in the Tiger catalog and is called florescent green. Now to look for the Tiger catalog.
What a saga.....

I just pulled up the Tiger website (http://www.tiger-coatings.com/en/downloads) and under color charts there is a Fluorescent Green. So, if reasoning applies, this would be the official color
Thoughts??

Haha it did take a bit of clicking around but I found it too... just to see it for myself! That's perfect. Thanks so much for doing that for all of us! I checked my local coater's site and they deal with Tiger products. I'm sure it won't be a problem to get mine done here. Stoked!
