What a fantastic bike!

Until this thread I'd never heard of decoupage, any chance of a quick "how-to" or overview on how it's done?

There are many tutorials on the web :wink:

To create a water-resistant and durable finish I used a combination of Mod Podge Outdoor and Mod Podge Hard Coat.
Just make the frame clean and stick your favorite motives (eg from magazines) with Mod Podge.
After a day of drying you can paint it clear with Podge Hard Coat.
That's all.

Another shot under a bit of sunshine (such bright colors I've never seen :D )

I have been observing it since the beginning.

Very impressive and beyond the routine we see.

Congratulations, I think it will be an inspiration for many people with projects and ideas. :D

That's awesome!

I love it, bit loud for my taste but the effect is superb and the decoupage idea is such a good one for a fully original finish!

I'm so tempted to try it myself now.....

After seeing your snow pics and admiring the paint, I thought of how to help your front mech:
