Nice work, didn't have the balls to re-create the splatter on mine but you look as though you're very well prepared to lay done something faithful to the original.

The best thing about these frames is the ride, going from an alloy Kula to one of these is like going from wearing Dunlop Green flash to properly fitted cushioned running shoes.


A nice skinny steel quill stem takes away a lot of shock too, so much so that the NOS 1" Mag 21's I had lined up for it really aren't needed.

had a bit of time o do some more. the splatter took some effort tbh and aint perfect. daisy did a bit on the bars but it was too risky to let her loose with paints over much. anyway, what dya rek, its been lacquered as well now and is currently drying, along with the flexstem which a gave a quick blast of black to freshen it up :D

Looking good matey and don't be too harsh about the splatter...they were all done by hand after all! My Fire Mountain that I built up a few months back even had a thumb print on the headtube...should have taken a picture of that I suppose :)

Ok I'm just going to say it. I really admire the work and experimentation but the decal positioning is questionable and the original schema was proper nice. Ok i'm off to hide somewhere before I get flamed :-S
