Yeah, the idea is one color dominant in graphic, wheels, stickers-- maybe on trucks, copers, grip tape or stencil on grip tape as well.

I'm bored when I don't consider color on a wall hanger.

Sure fun rides there, but all in one color is just overkill and looks dull. Certain colors can be better highlighted by combining them with different colors (could also be a color that's already in the graphics for example). But that's just my taste/opinion and I usually build up a board with components that work best together, no matter what color they are.

It's the only monochrome board I've done.  Just thought it would be fun for a change.  Even the bearings are Reds.  It was set up to be a rider, so maybe doesn't belong in Collector's Corner.  I have changed the setup on there several times.  Right now it has Seismics and Mellow Yellow Dragons.  It you want a board that will turn like crazy, take a deck with concave and relatively short wheelbase (like this Q10 for instance) and put some Seismics on it.  It's awesome.
