There's at least two ways to skin that cat (pun intended):
1) Learn how to skin Opera and set your own scrollbar style in the
corresponding skin.ini file found in your skin.zip file.
2) Leverage Opera's built-in user-stylesheet functionality, and specify
something like this:
/* Styled scrollbar */
scrollbar-base-color: orange !important;
scrollbar-arrow-color: green !important;
scrollbar-DarkShadow-Color: blue !important;
...in your user.css file.
Note: While option 1 may be the most difficult to learn, it provides the
best user experience for all pages. After all, option 2 may only work
correctly on "BackCompat" pages with properly formatted <BODY> tags. To
bookmarklet into your address bar:
If you see "BackCompat" then there's a good chance option 2 may work.

BTW, have you perused Opera's skins lately?
