Okay.. Placed the decals on the IF last night :shock: Man was that stressful.. Gotta get it right one time, first time :shock:

Anyways, won't reveal the full look, but having done the Decals I was able to then [having protected the Decal areas] press in the Obligatory King and get an idea of profile.. Oh, and attach my Two King Ti Cages 8)

Not sure about the wheels & tyres on that. Would look better with more spokes and silver ones!

Here is the basis for my Ti HT Build.. Should sit nicely among the Herd at Home..

Got a bunch of kit ready for it too.. Easton CT2 Bars & Post, SID Ti Race, Crossmax, Hutchinson USTs.. Keeping the M960 Gruppo tho, one of my favourites.. Unless someone's got NOS XTR 950 Kit sitting around :wink:

Should end up something like..

Am I alone in preferring the bike before?

Probably not; The Green & Yellow thing is FlagShip IF, I just wanted to go my own way 8)

The Blue & White Decals in the Catalogue Shot always reminded me of the first generation Fat Ti..
