Well I got it back last night , chappie said "dont touch it too much , its not quite dry :shock: "
Anyway, well chuffed with the paint, was gonna take some pics yesterday in the sun but it pissed it down all afternoon, so it stayed indoors where I got impatient and started putting decals on , then the BB, and couldnt help but get it to this stage before taking the photo's this morning :roll:

Image

lost some paint forcing the tange forks back in place, but not really that visible.

Image

New decals , DX group.

Image

You can see the paint effect best here, sort of white with pinky-purple.

Image

Ah yes , and the retrobike sticker

Image

Will post it up in the readers bikes section when its finished. :wink:

Looks much nicer in the white. The blue looked cheap.
