I'll appease you... :lol:
I think it looks great Mate! I really like the Stealthy look of it with the Carbon & Black wheels...You've done a great job!!

Couple of Q's: How'd you rate the durability of Argos's Paint for regular Off Road & I've been looking at those Exotic forks , did you get the Carbon Steerer & how do you rate those?...

Cheers mate, the stealth look was not really my intent but its growing on me.

The bike isn't rideable just yet but its had enough laquer to help protect the finish. Dr S did advised me that stove enamel has a habit or chipping though. I intend using some helicopter tape on the vunerable areas

The forks, in fact all of the Exotic Carbon products are great. lovely finish and excellent fit. The 1" steerer option only uses a Cro-Mo steerer. The 1 1/8" is available in carbon. I was gutted about that but hey-ho.

Argos do a fab job of the paint but are quite expensive. 6 week turn-around too :roll:

Its just nice to see an old p7 being revived, no matter the style in which it has been done. The saddle looks a bit painful though !
Pic with the cables and chain on perhaps ?
