These were waiting on the doormat when I got home last night! 8)

The finishing touch via gil_m, some 'Pickle' stickers :lol:

I sent him a pic of the RTS-2 decals, and he created these exact font match. So, tonight I'll be polishing the RTS up and putting these babies on ready for the Lincoln ride on Sunday :D

Yea, its got some NOS Specialized grips on it now, that I got from JV. Really nice actually, comfier than I thought they'd be as they're quite thin.

Your probably right about it never being finished, as Ed (Orange71) dropped round 2 red brake boosters at the weekend so I'll be giving them a go soon.......... :roll:

Oh yes Mr B, the RTS-Pickle will be coming to Sussex for a pre-MM spanking :D

It'll then be stripped down, cleaned and prepped up ready for the big June event, where it'll be wearing a Spin rear wheel (that I'll be nicking off Kev on Sunday) 8)
