I had a mod build P7 on a tatty 2006 frame. I bought a donor 2010 P7 for the frame with it's Reynolds 631 tubing & improved cable routing & dropouts. It was the cheapest P7 build I've ever seen but only cost me £130. It's getting most of the parts from the retired 2006 frame plus a few upgrades to make it worthy of the P7 name.

As I bought it. Previous owner had recently had it powdercoated by Orange & had a mix of original decals.

Frames been powdercoated by Powder Shack in black pearlescent. Gone for non-original finish & decal colour plus the modern head tube badge.

Also had the 2006 Fox 32 140mm forks done in mat black. I have some 2017 Fox 120mm. Not sure which it will end up with yet.

Paint and decals look great. We're the decals applied first then clear coated ?
