The decals are not far too late, they're period correct if not a little streched
the later ones were stretched, hence my point, and given all your previous criticism of Orange decals on multiple previous threads im surprised at that comment from you to be honest.
Steady on chaps it's just a bike.
Carl's raised his views on the bike openly on a few threads now, I'm cool with that and I respect his opinion.
I agree that the stickers are a bit of a downer and if they weren't lacquered on I'd have changed them by now for sure.
The paint I tend to disagree on, only because I saw the finish on the original frame and what Kevin has done with this is closer to the original than a bog standard Bob Jackson or Argos clockwork knock off, he did build it originaly after all.
Will I change it one day? Probably. But this bike has something special about it even with these issues, and now it's no longer rusting away there is plenty of time to do this and plenty of other projects to work on first
Killi flyer comp for me.
Sorry Adrian, just far too passionate about it, especially given there are so few left.
Im glad you saved it as I said, you know im a massive fan of British builders and Orange for reaching to my mind the level it did as an Iconic British brand bitd, and perhaps this is why the detail was perhaps more important to me.
Perhaps if and when you have finished with it you could bear me in mind.
And to be fair, Gravy Monster too, with the Saracen, id happily have that in my stable too.
