Brilliant. What a finished bike that is.

Cheers, can't take all the credit though. The guys at JLH Race Paint did a fantastic job with the re-spray, will be using them again.

Absolute beauty mate. I have/had the lower spec'd and tubed Sentinel from the same year.

My Sentinel got replaced by RSP some 2-3 years later though as the frame de-bonded. Therefore I now have a 94/95 titanium Sentinel??!!?? (i.e. repainted by RSP to look like the Sentinel, but an M-Trax frame).

I'm coming back to England in October to take her back to New Zealand.... Can't wait!

Regarding the decals. Were they self adhesive and did you lacquer over them?

Yeah they were self adhesive and are just applied over the top of the paint/laquer.

Mini update time!. Had sourced a few final finishing pieces a while ago for this one and just finished fitting them tonight. When riding the bike I found the stem far to long so have been on the lookout for a suitable replacement, 100mm Flexstem now fitted and no more stretching to reach the bars. The seatpost was what took the longest to find though, the Uno looked ok but a 4130 Kalloy was what was really needed and one finally came up on eBay recently. Finally a pair of Michelin Hi-lite Hot tyres to finish the original spec. I'll get some ride pictures soon hopefully but here's a couple of pic's until then.
