What have you done to that stem
It took me 14 years to get it into the condition I gave it to you in
Sorry mate but it did look a bit shabby. The whole bike is rather smart so it'd be a shame to spoil it. We both know it's in it's rightful place now and restored to its former glory
. I'm considering getting some decals made to match the original etching but it'll never look the same. Might take the ones I've put on off as I'm not sure about them to be honest.
Rob, please peel those decals off. If these are the same ones I came across on ebay, clearly they are poor repos. The "R" is wrong, as are the "O"s, the "K" is f*cked up and so is the "N".
As well if you are to put the logo on it, it should be maybe half to 2/3 the size you currently have stuck on there. as well as being centred on the stem a little better.
I was with up to this point, but given how much you've been pushing for perfection, this is just wrong in my opinion.
just my 2¢
Trying not to be too harsh on you. Just got news from a local seller that he already sold the RM Experience he had for sale for $50!!! Can't believe I missed the ad posted last Thurs, didn't see it till now.
