Well so far I've the original decals from the company ( anyone know the right way to apply " solvent applied transfers? " ) along with the laminated job card ( made in 1989 for Raymond Gullen....hi Ray! I got yer bike! ) and a load of late 80s/early 90s Dura Ace gubbins ( non-aero brakes and 9 speed bar-end shifters ).
I'm just waiting for my local BMX shop to ship in an order of white brake line and I'm ready to start rebuilding.

What it looks like so far ( original decals NOT applied yet ).

Gorgeous bike...hmm I'll have to think about repainting in orange...looks good with the black wheels.

Scary size..is it a bike or a gate?

Hi, I was at Visual Impact today with my bike asking about putting new decals on. But it's more complex with the lacquer to remove too - see my post above.

That's a beautiful bike! I owned a Bob Jackson Track Bike BITD and rode it on the road with brakes added.
