That is nice -

Seems like you put a lot of dough in to that bike.

That Dekerf fork and bar stem is very very pretty.

Good for you!

Whoa! looks like mine, just shinier.

I'm a fan of the green on green.

Thing is if I change the paint, chances are I'll have to change the fork colour just to match and probably other things like headsets, hubs ......

Just got mine back from the shop.

I'll post somemore pics on the weekend.

hi
welcome fellow vancouverite. actually i'm in coquitlam.
nice dekerf you have there. i'd stick with that green.
check out toxik harald in richmond for paint.
i believe a single colour paint job is about $200.
that includes stripping and prepping.
http://www.toxikdesignlab.com/
and he does a better job than dekerf. lol IMHO
harald used to paint for brodie till paul left.
then painted for dekerf too. check out my brodie
build thread for an example.
see ya around

Hey there guy. I just moved from N. Coquitlam to Burnaby. Originally from Victoria.

Thanks for the tip about Toxic Herrald.

Ya I wonder why Dekerf is so much more?

Anyway - do you think Toxic H would repaint the Dekerf logo too?

If it's $200 i may be able to get it done soon.

You like the green eh? I was thinking about changing it up but still not sure.


hi
the $200 would only cover the paint job.
decal painting would most likely be a big extra.
very labour intensive i'd bet.
you'd be better off checking out one of the decal experts on here for reproductions.

Can you post some pics?

I'd like to stay with the green frame but with the red fork I have; seems way to little red in the frame for all that red in my fork.

And green fork and green frame maybe too much green.

Maybe a black fork would look good with the green frame.

Picture in my gallery,. Green with black forks and rasta bits and pieces. Singlespeed at the moment but ran gears and red manitou forks for a while too.
