Wow thats blue! Are you the guy that was looking for 27" blue tyres in the UK?

Anyway as in your face as I find that it actually works quite well aesthetically with just the two colours of blue and silver.

Bravo for something different!

I'm hunting blue rubber pedals of that era, yes the shifter is a bit dark but it's original positron 12 setup so think I'll leave it for now though am fighting the urge to errr Fix it :facepalm:

interestingly it's exactly the same frame as the Dawes Lightning

Well you'll need those for when yours get dirty....

Blue rubber pedals :D Sure there's plenty of BMX pedals (?)

Ok regarding the gear lever I suppose but what about that bell!?
