Thats looking great 8)

Was only thinking a baby blue colour for my 95 Kona build :lol:

In the last picture the decals actually look the same colour as the frame, I had to go back and check. How did you re apply the Tange decal ??

Nice - "that blue" is about the best colour for a frame (only my opinion, of course) but it needs black tyres and to lose the blue chainstay protector too.
It's almost like "Platsa Blue" - what's the RAL number - 6034?

Tidy though 8)
