Wahoo - finally got a Fuquay on its way. Needs a respray tho as its a lovely bright green with dodgy orange forks!


As this is a new project/mission I need to decide upon a colour choice - I fancy going powder coat too.

Colours as follows: Dark red, rust, olive green, yellow, black or rootbeer.

Also Im attaching these scans of a Fuquay brochure I picked up from a show once. Tell ya there is hardly anything on the web....no pics at all.

If anyone has any pics of Fuquays etc (also the logo positioning on the frames etc) I would be dead happy.

File comment: Lovely rear wishbone on this Fuquay, I think it's the only pic I've got left of it unfortunately.

It was a custom build (apparently?).
I haven't got the emails anymore as it was a couple of years ago. It was Northwave's old S/S and he had the track ends put on. I think you can still see it on his website www.rothar.com

I quite like the monostay/wishbone look, God knows how the back end felt....
