Yep, it's a home done job... Rattlecans and patience..

I'll be the first the admit that it's not perfect but I thought I'd give it a go to see how good I could get it.. Turned out actually OK and saved a heap in the process. Was getting quoted over £200 for a pro job...

Is it really a home-made work? :shock: The color looks like metallic! was it a spray paint?

Started to pull some parts together for this and check out the basic build look. Think I'm going to go for pared back blue, black and silver, keeping the colour to the frame.

lovin that, great paintjob 8)

black Judy and crown looks ace, but brace does not match, black ones - painted or a ShockBone one.

Silver rear trangle is fine, guess it will need some other silver parts to make it suit (cranks, brakes,..)
