and another great build from nader! even if you don't like your bikes, your pictures alone make it worth having a look!

indeed stem and post look like a perfect match. I think the fork is a perfect match with the frame too. Maybee even because of the colours not being a perfect match. sounds strange, doesn't it :wink:

thanks all :D

perhaps out of boredom but I've made a few experiments

first attempt

Image

the result was not satisfactory!! :(:( (colors were not the same)

..so the fork went to the lab :lol: (it was hard work)

Image

Image

of course the old decals will be replaced by new

and now looks good

Although I loved them in pink I've got to admit they look better in black.

Get better & better each time.

You'll be needing one of these to go with it (don't think they do pink !).

Very interesting project. The quirky Japanese Kuwahara is something different and the level of perfection is very high.

Very, very nice! I love a bit of neon.
Did you really grind .2mm off of the diameter of that lovely black XT seatpost??
5 retrobike hailmary's if you did
