Can you get glossy black ones or just matt? Or is it a case of paint your own!

So just tyres and "butt plugs" then you promise to stop tinkering, right? Although, how about thumbies? :wink:

The other owners will have to go some to beat this... I think I've counted 3 others now???



Never stop tinkering! I think there are a few frames around that are being built up but I only know of 2 fully built and 3 or 4 in various stages...Why when I saw it in the first place I had to have it as I had not seen one in such good condition...Like my STI's but maybe thumbies on my next build! 8)
