I have a frame of unknown origin. No serials and nothing I've seen quite matches it so I've no idea what it is. Short of finding out, once it's all polished and built up, I fear it will look naked without wearing decals.

What would you do? I'm not looking to pass it off as something else, but feel it needs something.

It's a titanium frame. Maybe sans decals will work once it has been built up, but if it doesn't......

I have the same problem with a mystery fillet brazed frame. So I started looking at words similar to 'Mystery' obviously 'Enigma' is out of the question but things like 'Conundrum' or 'Arcane' or 'Mystique' would look quite good I think. Then of course you could have fun with fonts....... :lol:

I'm normally good at this kind of thing.

E?nigma
En?gma
Mys-ti-ry
Looksy (play on Lynskey)
Not One Tinbred (tinbread, Tincan etc)
Pipedream on Tirius

Or I could just put Zaskar decals on it.

I ran my Litespeed road bike for years with nothing more than a headbadge, it always had understated class about it.

How about a simple ? on the head tube?
