    I vote cream / blue or a combo of the two. My eye goes straight to that guard; and that's hard to believe with that frame, but it does in the present color.

    I'll definitely paint it.
    Just collecting thoughts on the overall look.
    Will get it painted Wednesday.

    I'm not sure the guard will ever totally work with that kit.

    It matches the style well, but ultimately breaks up the flow of the body kit. This is because the straight lines of the guard, particularly the top edge, clash with the smooth arc of the body.

    It also disrupts the wave shaped negative space created by the leading edge of the body and the back edge of the fender. The frame, for example, enhances that negative space by following similar lines.

    You may have more pleasing results with a round chain guard that attaches only to the sprocket. Or some other mostly curved guard that fits entirely within the space.

    I was thinking similar, top line being straight detracts from the body’s sloping lines. Maybe upside down would work, except that it wouldn’t be able to be fitted.

    Ditto. The straight lines don't work. The was a mention of a disc style guard, might be fun to use a found object there...

    I agree about no chainguard, I never intended to put one on.
    All though I do like the Columbia guard on there, I'll probably run without it.
    I'll still paint it to see what it looks like.

    Tough call. It could go either way.

    Looks like they were made for each other. I like it.
