Here's mine. I got the frameset used and it was really beat up. Stripped it and had it powder-coated with a nice and sparkly orange. Made the decals myself as I don't care for the original Bonty decals anyway (mainly the typeface). I have a vinyl cutter so it was pretty easy, as long as it's just one color!

That looks really great!
I´m not sure about the stickers, but that´s just my personal opinion.
Otherwise it looks the business :twisted:
I especially like the Rolf wheels, I gather they´re even lighter than my bonty/chris king race lites.
How do they ride?

And a close up of those decals, particularly like these.

That is one fine looking Bontrager, but I am a sucker for violet. Where did you source those topo Bontrager decals? Very cool, and nicely executed.

Here are a couple of my past Bontragers a 96 RaceLite and 97 Ti-Lite

I actually had the Ti-Lite set-up with crossmax SL wheelset and Xtr brakes as well, but the only pics I can find are with the cross rides it came with. The Ti-Lite was a real sweet ride for sure.

Longtime lurker (mostly on STW for my sins...), but couldn't resist this thread - there's some lovely bikes on here.
