yeah great yo- you've made it your own and as has been said, great paint job, very light too 8)


curious gazz, you wrote "great paintjob", is this not original? i'm asking because i don't know but i thought this was a paint design they did back in the day, seem to remember seeing this design but purple and silver on the 10th anniversary.

does look great though either way, i like the silver metal flake look aswel as the deepness of the green.

The paintjob is a re-spray and was needed :facepalm: The frame was well used and had a few scars to prove it! I based the paint on the 92 10th anniversary but obviously purple changed to green. I had not seen it done before and went for it.

This bike has been in the hands of a professional photographer for a few months so i had better pick it up. I should have some decent quality images for here soon.
