Wow. That is a blast from the past!

I remember that picture so well. The interview was a classic.

I'm up for a sheet of stickers, too!

Ill scan my custom Mint drawing at some point. Got it done for me at Cyclex 1991 if I remember correctly.

It's framed at the moment. It even has a message "to jez and stace" (my sister who was also a Mint fan!

I remember seeing a alloy GT frame painted with the burt-esque flowers. literally covered, end to end. It was hanging as a frame in a bike shop.

I dont know who did it but it must of taken fricking weeks and weeks and weeks.

Ive also got my own mint sauce sketch JB drew me on a scrap of paper at Bicyclexpo. been on my wall for years.

I tried to re-create it on a misted up science room window once and promptly got an 'after-school' for 'drawing phallic shapes' :)

You sure? Even Jo wasn't mad enough to paint them on, he used stickers. That's one of the reasons I want to take a look at the article though - he was quite artistic with his placement and I want to make sure I get it right....

I've got one of those too!
Searched for it tonight but to no avail. Will try harder at the weekend and post a scan up here if I find it.

I was at Cyclex, 1991 I think, and I saw Dave Hemmings bike, said Dog Bolx, and Jo had painted a sketch of Dave Hemming's Mum on the seat tube doing the hoovering [/quote]



I've got a feeling my friend Pete the bike mechanic owned that Roberts for a while. Was talking to him about it the other week. Black and white with flowers?
