Bike looks awesome, really nice job. How exactly did you go about taking the frame back to plain chrome? Am thinking of getting same frame but prefer it without decals.
many thanks

My XC01 frame arrived yesterday - Cyfa if you're still around, how did you get the decals off?

BTW this thread convinced me to go for the Handsome dog - I'll post the picks as i find time to build it

Yar still here. Mrs bike has under gone a revamp with better parts but loathed to post it as its not prefect yet and wpnt be for a while.
Its actually an xc03!

Got the decals off with nitromors as the frame was polished anyway, but lacquered thoough it took that off too. Get a thread up.
