I have a Prestige from circa 1997 -I think - how can I firnd out more about it ? It's mainly grey with purple to the BB, head tube seat tube ends parts of the frame and has purple bars, mainly Deore LX

Sorry no pics as yet as I stupidly yes stupidly lent it to someone for the last 6 years whod can't have olied it once and it now requires lots of TLC and new components. :cry: :cry: :cry:

Mine is a wet paint finish too. Do you reckon they'd just airbrush my fade for me or am I looking at a full - on repaint? It hasn't had any lacquer coats yet.:?

Got all the bits. Was hoping to be up and riding in a couple of weeks but had a set back on the graphics too. :( .... got the tif files sorted for an A4 printed sheet and no - one seems to stock that clear, adhesive backed paper. The work order won't be here for another 6-8 weeks :(

I've just printed of some for my Kula in Gil_m's absence. OK it's water slide, you'll have to cut them out and then lacquer the frame afterwards, BUT it's quites impresive - err I did cunningly print it of on a very expensive laser printer at work though.. :twisted:

I would say primarily clockworks and prestiges, pre 95 (and 99 of course) and the occasional aluminium 'O'... in fact probably any early orange could have been painted in orange and white.. Might be a bit of a lucky dip, but definetly lucky if you can get it for a good price? It could always be a Townsend though :shock: :(
