Gorgeous build, I've enjoyed watching the evolution of it and the Lamborghini inspired theme :)

Brilliant... Love Love Love it!!!

Just a question tho.... and only a minor one
Where is the blue on the Superleggera that is reflected with the blue ano on the bike?

Personally, I think the Shock Bone looks out of place, and the colour coded one looks better.
To add carbon (esp at the rea, where it matches the spoiler) I would go for a carbon seatpost and maybe some carbon wrap on the chainstay as a protector

Love it tho. I really like car inspired bike custom builds. After Gravy Monsters' Gulf Kilauea and my JPS build (need to update the thread), I have my mind on another one now :wink:
Well done

Thanx mate there is a cabon rear chainstay protector ready for the bike but was so keen to get this bike built yesterday and today ready for a quick ride i forgot to add it :lol: will do though then that will be the carbon back end 8)

The blue turquoise is really my own touch as there is none on his car , its my own retro 90s touch :D it really looks good Dagger style 8)

to be continued Green Rockshox brace and carbon chainstay protector & Flite in lambo black suede :D

I like it and love the effort you've put in to bring it back too life

the only changes I would make..and they are incredibly small, are

the rear is not tied into the colour scheme beyond the brake so perhaps a light blue matching q/r? the other is the seat post..perhaps either a light blue q/r or a seat post with light blue rail grabbers?

Awesome thanx glade you like the build as much as i have its been probably out all of them my best iv'e enjoyed the most 8).. here is the changes i made i have put the green Rockshox brace on the forks took the chainstay protector off to show the carbon fabric one that stuck down, have to say it does look way better :D and replaced the Vetta SL for the Flite saddle, then add some colour to the rear brakes the rear end by adding some red titanium rear brake mount caps 8) here or pics of these changes :D
