The "Splattery one" and the "Spotty one" are different years IIRC.

Splattery was earlier approx 88/89 whilst Spotty was later around 89/90.

Nice :xmas-cool:

There is something about white that works with these frames. I prefer the 90 with the silver themed groupset and rear canti but this is a very close 2nd :D

Was the blue speckle on yours original?


Yep... Completely original
Mine appears to be more specklely than splattery than others I have seen tho... I guess thats the nature of hand painting 8)
