You certainly won't see another like it 8) it's a nice personal touch.
Love the mellow colours which work well

i like that, sometimes resprays don't work when it's a classic model but i think that looks great, the colour choice is very cool aswel. 8) 8)

is it a project 2 fork though? it looks a little different to mine, and out of curiosity why did you use a "mountain shock" sticker if you are running it rigid? or have you got some suspension forks done in the same coour aswel?

Fork is a modern P2 bought to a store in the states, 1 1/8, non threaded. A little higher than the old one (corrected for 100mm suspension).
The mountain shock sticker is because the original model had it and I like how the frame looks with it. No suspension fork though... :cry:
