Why not paint the stem to match the forks?

Would retain the originality of the forks and I think would look pretty cool.

Minimise the other colours/banding seen and you might be o to a winner.

Fork does look smidge long though .....

Very nice looking bike by the way :wink:


Yup...the non-drive side is virtually rubbing on the stay with a 2.3 tyre.

I am not really keen on the camo Mark, but good idea

I'm a big fan of that camofork, think it matches the frame in a strange way. A matching paintjob for the stem would be pretty cool, great idea Mark :wink:

Very nearly there...black hubs much better but I think black rims would be better too.
