This frame was advertised on Ebay..this was the initial thread http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... sc&start=0

Eventually decided on respray and colour..i have used the same local powdercoater to the Plymouth area on 4 different occasions now.

I wanted to do something slightly different in the way of the decals..so after liaising with Gil_m 8) over a about 6 email came up will this scheme.

Decals relevant to the frame crank side and 1992 decals non crank side{please forgive me i dont know the tech term}

For the purists...The stem is a generic "A" head stem, the forks are not triple butted..they are about 2006 and come with a "disc" bracket.{"decals/liveryed up to keep in era"}

I am chuffed to bits with the finish :D

Ernie :wink:
