Looks great mate!
Though I prefer it with the black gumwalls in the first pic with the gold forks. The forks look great. Drop GilM on here or find him on facebook at retrodecals as I know he does the Rock Shox decals.

Going through some old photos I discovered and came across these from it's very original build in 2000 before the rear disc brake conversion and its silver/green/red paint job!

White frame with a silver front and metallic red rear, the whole frame then covered in lacquer with a silver flake through it!

The decal typeface I found in a letraset book at work which Charlie then had masks cut in vinyl so they could be painted on.... forgot how beautiful it was! 8)
