Decided to paint the frame white.... a family friend who paints cars for a living did it. The white is a really nice pearl but you can't really tell from the pic.

Would look good if you painted bars and forks black and got a black seat! Otherwise great build, how much did you buy it for from your buddy?

I picked it up for $200....... i just did the wheel set, fork, stem, and hub guards. The wheels on it weren't bad, older profile hubs with a hazard lite rear and a hula hoop front. He wanted them back so he bought them for $150. I just sold a specialized p2 so i threw the money into the wheel set I wanted. Next i'm going to do some duo brand stunner tan walls and that will be it for a while. After a little bit maybe some chrome bars and for my birthday I'm going to do a new frame. either trans black or white. And I would have liked to get the forks in a different color BUT these were too good of a deal to pass up. I would paint them but the warranty is more important to me than the color. I think either a white or black frame will make it look good.

decent-ish parts bad colour scheme..
spray the frame the same colour as your forks it would look sick and be unique and get a 28t sprocket and bar ends

Painting doesn't void Odysseys warranty.

That is cool if it doesn't but it doesn't state specifically on their warranty page. It says that modifications have to be approved by them and then performed by a professional bicycle mechanic. I just don't want to chance it. If I paint anything right away it will be the frame. I'm kinda liking the orange...... looks stupid with the green on the frame though.

forks, bars and seat are what makes the bike look bad. paint the bars, forks, and change the seat and it will look decent
