I'm not too keen on the saddle (it looks big and clunky compared to the svelte frame), but you've done a great job with the paint and decals!

Finaly done, Will post better pics soon

The saddle will be replaced, this one I have is ugly and very uncomfortable.

In the future I might redoo this and then have the frame powdercoated in fluro yellow since the rattlecan paint is very fragile. Even after many clearcoats it still sensitive to chipping.

But this will be no garage queen. Taking it for a 60km mountain run on saturday. Time to turn some heads :)


as for parts I really would love to have a full M952 groupset on it but thats for later when i have money for it.
