No apologies for this outrageously disgustingly coloured early 90's mayhem that is Arthur Caygill - Columbus Max

I'm with Jamie I like the purple.

And I walked past a gorgeous black and gold Bob Jackson in Bethnal Green on Friday that had fallen foul of that fate, I must of hung around there for at least half an hour in the hope the owner would appear and I could ask to buy it off him so I could put back to its rightful state, but no sign of him.

Yes but I doubt I looked that dashing loitering about on a cold wet London side street.

I do have to go back to the same project at some point though so it shall be mine (said in a Ming the Merciless sort of voice)

Raleigh SBDU 753R 1988 Banana. Full bare metal re-paint with a twist, the twist being that all the decals or what would have been decals have been painted on. Only decals on this bike are the Reynolds (which I had custom made as stickers not cut vinyl so that they are same as originals) and the GVD.

Looking very good so far this month, what a great collection to have to choose from. And the months not over yet.
