Nice, sure. It looks a bit like Aquafade, but it isn't. Think I see tiny glitter particles in the green too. Frame has been repainted at some point, but its owner didn't consistantly replace all decals. Lazyness or didn't he like the Yo comic figure???

Desireable yes, in particular at the right pricepoint of course.

Hi, I'm the owner :)

You're right, it's not aquafade - it was supposed to be, but Roberts Cycles (Croydon) didn't quite colour match it correctly. It's a metallic version with slightly darker colours. The decal issue isn't laziness - when I had it resprayed replacements weren't available so they did the best they could to create vinyl versions. I'd have loved the Yo comic figure on it!

There are more details and pics here.

Cheers,
Ade.

Hi Ade,

Welcome! The paint may not be Aquafade, it is still nice :wink:

The decal thing shouldn't be a serious issue, as all decals will come available from FatCogs soon. One could add the missing. Done.

Think you made a nice covering with decent pics.
