As a tribute it isn't a bad one, but if you have your Palmer facts dialled, this will look like someone trying to make McQueen Gulf livery tribute on a Lancia Delta Integrale...
The most annoying thing is the lying and the overhyping. As if there weren't enough eBay articles sporting the "Kult" moniker in their title... Or overpriced M900 XTR. Or German bike "mags" who'd write anything, but mostly how you "need" to own something because it's "the new trend" or has potential to become "kult". Geesh!
Excuse my rant above. The bike is good, the paint is okay, but someone's trying to suggest it's something that it's not and I'm not okay with that. It would've been so easy to write "I liked Palmer a lot but I was too cool to own a Specialized so I built this replica - hope you like it!"
