Thought I'd share my 22 year old custom MTB's new paintjob with you all. :

That's a nice looking paintjob - is it a Field frame or something else? Not a brand I've heard of I'm afraid.

Built by a Bloke called Denis Field who worked for Condor before retiring to set up his own frame building business in Cornwall. I designed the frame specing the 531 tubes individually. Denis tweeked here and there (like using fork blades instead of chain stays). It was the only one Denis ever built. It was such a different build to the road frames he cut his teeth on. So truly a one-off.
