    I like both combos, red and black and orange and black. The issue I see with orange and black is that it makes me and others think of Halloween. So, I would probably go with red.

    I think it's great to make it your own. Most manufacturers have used most colors at some point.

    When I think of grabber orange I think of this ...

    I used to have a '69 Camaro that color. It was a stripped model with a vinyl top. I like the orange block and black drivetrain

    I'm going to paint the drivetrain because the brighter color makes it easier for my tired eyes to see what I'm working on when the time comes.
