got the scott from MM a few months ago , he painted the flouro green /pikk/white bits then laquered it with the wrong stuff
then got fed up with it and posted it for sale ,so i rescued it for the
collection ,glad i did too as its a stunning thing to ride
the paint a bit rubbish but i think i'll just work away at it and see if
i can get it up to spec , might need it done properly and thats an option for the future
got some scott unishocks in the post too so i might fit them
