Sold on my gold club roost as it felt too big for me. Had to buy aa frame for a mate to trade for his patriot 8)
Looking to get it painted/powdercoated, does anyone know anyone cheap and decent in plymouth?

Will be satin silver with gold decals. (Anyone got templates?)
Rear hose will go through frame once its done! Only missing bash as old one was too big for new device.
Let me know what you think!

Thats nice bud!

Looks good in that colour too, dunno why you would want to change the colour (unless its tatty?)

Orange will do a fresh powdercoat , Bearings & stickers for you :wink:

GIve them a call, they were mega helpful when I needed decals for MrO

Wheres yer Stratos forks though?? :shock: :shock:

Thanks fellow!

Its a direct replament for my roost frame which was gold front with silver rear so looking for something like that. Its not massively tatty but im not really a fan. Im feeling this more already and only had a go on a speed bump near my house.

How much do orange do it for? I read they dont do custom decals?

Still got the stratos forks - they will most likely end up in my coffin after they have killed me :lol: They are on the gold club roost's big brother!
I didnt even get round to doing a thread for the roost :lol:
All the parts need to match see!
Here is what it looked like.

Orange faq's :

http://www.orangebikes.co.uk/support/faqs/

£200 including bearings, stickers & return postage

I think you have the colour balance about right there, too much gold & you'll ruin it

Get them bloody Stratos's on there though :wink: :lol:

Hmm thats way too much :lol:

Its going to be satin silver all over with gold decals :wink:

Will look perfect - go on, picture it in your head!

And the stratos will upset the geo way too much. The frame is only warrantied for 125mm.
