got this frame and forks from grade'a'failure, as karma, thanks very much buddy :)

Image

it is however not without its issues.

looks like someone hs applied some (a lot!!) heat at some point, and there is a small clamp mark from the front mech.

the forks are a very nice colour but wont be staying like that :wink:

its all off at the powder coaters and should hopefully be back with me next week, when the fun begins :D

That's not heat, that's badly-applied Nitromors! Interested to see how you get it looking though :)

Really! It looks all shiny and rain bowed like when a blow torch has been applied:/

Really looking forward to seeing this coming back from the coaters. Any clues on spec yet or are you keeping us in suspense? :)

Absolutely love it. Looks great all black, forks suit it really well. Perfect fit with the kit as well, all nice and simple. You must be really pleased how it turned out.

Really is superb. Those wishbones look great.
