So, you have a Zaskar frame, standard issue, say from 1993 so it has the ti rear cable guide and the seat collar with the ti bolt but thats it.

No decals.

No forks.

No BB.

Just a frame.

What would you do to bling one up? (and no, 'bin it' doesnt count for the non GT fanboys)

Matt black powder coat frame and forks and as much ano as possible, red? Gold? Would certainly be very different. Or carbon forks, bars post ect?

Hmm, too JPS Lotus. :?

I'd do the opposite - completely silver everything 'ghost bike' look. No colour at all...

Annodize it red or purple and do an all black build on it. Otherwise, polish the crap out of it and do an all blue, purple or red build on it. Try to match the decals to your colour choice.

Christmas is on its way, so I would say Arctic white with tinsel and baubles, or tons of red and green ano.
