Hi all

i got bored yesterday so thought i would throw a lick of paint on the dale pub hack i got off here a while back

when i got it it was a touch sorry for itself to say the least and screaming for some paint and nicer components (the acrea crank set was looking for the first bin it could find lol)

so a quick rub down and then the idea hit me to make a badboy homage bike but with a flash of color just to brighten it up a little

a few pics for you

thanks
the original grey was a great color but there was some serious paint damage hence the quick redo
i love the look of the current bad boy but a little bit too much black for my taste so matt black paint with a splash of orange and polished cant be wrong 8)

That paint looks great. Really like what you've done - I'm waiting for my M500 to come back from powdercoating.

Very slick job, well done dude.

Can go wrong with a bit of black and orange ;)

I thought the first pic was the before and was going to say 'why did you want to do that as it looked really good!' Then realised the pics were around the wrong way :oops:
