Hi all,

Finally its back from paint, even the paints retro Twopack oil based paint. I have a customer who works with classic cars and has a licence to use cellulose paint. The wait was well worth it as the finish is a deep shine and being oil based should stand up to the element well. I striped and polished the sub frame and swinging arm 2 months ago and ive been waiting on the frame to come back from paint.

The theme is black and polished with a hint of lightness and modern.

The air shocks are the lightness and modern, i'm afraid theres more modern to follow. And yes the Ibeam is on upside down, waiting on a Syncros Ahead and its only there to keep the build moving.

If you knew me you would have known I had a goat, and not have brought the subject up :x . His name was Buck and he kept the lawn in FANTASTIC condition. Then one night the foxes took him. God i loved that GOAT :( . :

Must thank him for making up the older style head tube badge its perfect and a colour change on the mainframe badge, also thanks to Alex for the photos of head tube badge for Gil to work from.

Head tube and main frame decals on, changed the grey on cycle to red as I have the same on the polished R series and prefer it.
Undecided on putting the sanandreas badge on the swinging arm, leaving it off for now as looking to making a AFTER SHOCK decal for it.

Struggling to get a 130/140 Syncros Ahead :cry: , have the bars, brakes, shifter and cable ready to go. Anyone help.

Very nice, I'd of be torn there, it looks an amazing polish job and I wouldn't of wanted to paint over it. On the other hand it would then look a bit plain so...

Can I ask what you polished it with? :D
