Don't purchase parts solely because of the color.
Purchase parts because they suit your riding style.
If you REALLY want your frame and forks to be that color then I recommend just painting them yourself.

Get any chrome or raw frame.
Lay trans teal on lightly.
Boom!

If you choose a chrome frame (or any other color really) and decide to paint it follow these steps

Buy frame
Go to hardware store
Buy aircraft stripper (paint remover in a can basically. If you choose a chrome frame, skip this step, only get this can of paint remover if the frame is already painted)
buy sand paper
buy small bottle of acetone.
buy cans of paint the color you desire.
go home
if the frame is chrome only, start sanding it all over the frame (sand the forks and bars etc if you want to paint those as well)
if the frame you buy already has paint on it, take it all off by spraying aircraft stripper on it let it soak in and scrape all of the old paint off... (WEAR GLOVES WHILE USING AIRCRAFT STRIPPER.)
Once the paint is off the bike, sand that shit down to a nice sanded chrome...
wipe the soon to be pained parts down with acetone to remove any extra particles, make it nice and clean.

then hang the parts up in the garage or something with the garage door half open for ventilation and start painting!

wait for it to dry, put it all back together and BOOM custom paint.

It's so much fun and so rewarding to paint ur own bike.... makes you feel like a boss. lol


Good luck on ur bike quest. But seriously, if you can try not to choose a bike for the color, you should always look into what parts and components and specs it comes with (weight, sealed bearings, doublewall rims, etc. )
