Found that other Klein pic I mentioned earlier in gray camo. Heard the paint scheme might be called "gossamer"?

Pleased you like it Si :wink:

Digging the stencil idea, maybe some Army style stenciled letters and numbers too :)

Funny thing is this bike was built for fun but it's the only bike i've built where i've been happy with the set up and components :lol:

Stencil in a white star and M.A.S.H. as a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital is what you'll need if you ever take that off road again :lol: :lol:

Fantastic looking none the less 8)

just had to come back for another look.

i think i am going to totally rip off your original paint scheme if you dont mind.

i have everything in the shed to build a cruiser, bar the frame.

No worries man 8) , i'm flattered actually :lol:

If you need any advice give me a shout, if i was doing it again though i'd have done the camo on top of a primary colour like light green (or whatever the dominant colour is to be), then you dont need to sponge every bit of the frame :wink:
