As for pikes, don't know if this is confirmed or not; but, you might just run up to it and get on like you could for vehicles in H3. I'm doubtful of personal pikes. So to have personalized colors for a vehicle you just grab is a bit much, although it would be cool. They also seem to be a dull gray (my internet sucks where I'm at atm so no go on videos) so it works with almost everything. As for changing the colors on weapons, I think that colors really don't matter like in Borderlands or Mass Effect. The aesthetics are similar enough in style that the colors can be forced to work together.
C'mon just imagine it you pick up a Pike on earth, then you like "Well, it's not that this is't F*#%ing Awesome, it's just this would be that much better [b]if[/b] it had a similar Colour to my Armour". And Guns say you get a Silver Dollar Shot Gun and then your like "Yes; Finally, but this really sticks out compared to my armour" seriously how annoying is it when you get this awesome Gun and it looks nothing like your armour, I don't know about you but I found that pretty annoying especially in Halo 3 & Reach.
