Wow those forks look good. Was it just one big sticker?? I have a set of Manitou Comp's that I don't think are very desireable, that I've thought of doing the same with. Would like to know how you did it.

Cheers

Yup, it's a weather-resistant sticker ;) I managed to purchase a 1m x 1m roll of it (with a similar 'finsh') and made 2 retangular cut-outs according to the dimensions of the legs. Then pasted them on slowly, making sure not to leave air-pockets (in the form of bubbles) behind. I just figured it might be a less expensive, less risky and also reversible move, as compared to removing the anodizing. Also, it acts as a protective layer and keeps the fork authentic as well. :) They're also available in a vast array of colors/tones and finishes.

What a great bike! Did you saw my 96 Kula???

Always loved the CNC looks of early Manitous. Classic!
