dilemma

just received some brand new decals from race face with the help of the fellow retrobiker klasse. Stripped the cranks and sanded. Don't know if I should paint them red again. As you can see shes already bare aluminum, so its a little bit a shiny combo.. suggestions ? : )

received today some Kore Elite skewers from stevetait. Failed to get the red anodized ones, so I sanded and painted the engraved in red.
It looks a little bit fade but its in the same red as the race face cranks.

Great build, I'm inspired!

Struggling to find any of those SID, in the last few weeks of looking I haven't spotted any.

My frame ( stamped '97) has an integrated seat clamp. Haven't found anything neat to fit there...

Enjoy your bike,
JT
