Oh go on then I'll put some more decals on.

Biggest problem is that I have nowhere to paint the forks and it's too cold to do it outside for a good finish.

I don't want to show the bike off too much now until it's done but I've just put the decals on.

Anything I've done wrongly here? ;-)

Yay nice work Rob
The down tube decal looks like it's across a weld ?
Maybe that's just how it has to be...have you checked how it was on the original pics ?

Yes that's exactly as the original was, measured the old decals and took loads of pictures before I removed them. I was actually really chuffed to get them spot on when I applied them as the RM one is huge and tricky to apply.

These forks are clearly the wrong colour. :-D

Imagine the carnage if I did spray them while they were still on the sofa. :shock:
