It's safe to use on your fork.

Just might not turn out as planned because spray paint is of poor quality.

Hi. I’m after somewhere in the UK to re powder coat my Orange Five in Candy Apple Green (I think it’s called). Does anyone know of anywhere that does a decent match?
Cheers.

Try Google.
Find your nearest powercoaters, phone them up and ask them

I’ve tries a few but no one can guarantee a colour match which is why I wondered if anyone else had got it done.

I think is the closest in ral is 6038, which is flat not metallic.
If your wanting the candy that’s probably asking abit more then your run of the mill powercoater

Maybe try a car sprayer or an bike frame painter but it’s gona cost..

Have you tried contacting Orange? I'm sure they do a respray service.

This.

Orange charges £200 IIRC and that doesn’t void any warranties you may have and includes new decals and that. Not a dissimilar price to what you’ll pay for a quality job in the finish you are after.

For what its worth, its best to just get Orange to do it

Thought that rang a bell from working down the shop, just get on to orange and they'll sort it for you

I’ll give Orange a call thanks. They don’t show it in their website but no harm in asking the question. Cheers.
