Photographic update time
Built, but needing that final "fettle"
Out in the sun, and the Gold is sparkely... lovely
The idea came from GravyMonsters Gulf colour Kilauea, which is very impressive. I toyed with the idea of a similar, motorsport related scheme, so came up with Martini Racing, Marlboro Mclaren, but then I had a brainwave..... my Great Great Grandmother was Clemence Harriet Player, the grandaughter of John Player!! Seemed obvious really
That, and the Lotus 98T was the first F1 car that made me squiffy, when I was a kid
Still have to source an appropriate XTR bottom bracket to sort the chainline, and a front mech, as all mine are bottom pull. I have always just run this bike as a 1x8
Have bought the gold CK, the gold crank bolts, and gold hope. The graphics, powdercoat, and 2k clearcoat has cost me nothing
Unsure what to do with the forks, however. Maybe paint them black with gold graphics? Maybe gold with black graphics? Maybe just polish them up silver?
I love it
