Nah no problem, nothing special, it believe it or not is a DDG slammer 2, was originally A darkish blue and the swing arm and seat stays were like a very light and battered looking pearlescent blue, as below, thats why I decided to pop to motormania get me some spray paint and set about changing the colour. Would of posted a pic of it in readers bikes but don't really know if its old enough to be retro now even though they have stopped making them. lol

Yeah but only saw it once and saw it is right cause I had to have the volume right down so could barely hear it as at the time was living in a 1 bed flat and didn't want to wake my baby in his cot lol.

i've been using a small specialist polishing shop in the west midlands for a while now.
i've only had cranks done at £5 a time.
the results are first class.
in fact, they will be doing my gt xizang frame when it has been rewelded.
drop me a pm if you want their telephone number and you can contact them to see if they will do a postal service.
