Bought this recently from a member. It is pretty faded, but that suits my plan! I'm planning to do a grey Rat-bike! Judy FSX, grey M950 XTR and some UmmaGumma grey for tires......

Not going to be a garage-queen, but a fun-bike!

Here are the first pics!

Do yo have your own S-works factory production line hidden in that shed? :roll:

It feels like every week a "new" one is coming out......

Curious how "The Rat" will be build up, looks promising!

Take a look at the top of the seattube where the seatpost clamp has to be and where the front mech was. That's the origal color.....!

The decals are good though, so don't want to do a respray.... Just some good, used, grey parts....

Glad it finally arrived Bart.

When I said it was faded you can see what I meant. It will make the perfect rat build.

I want to see how this turns out. Some well worn in Umma Gummas would look a treat. Needs hard ano rims too. So jealous of your horde of M2 Stumpies!

Would some T-CUT and elbow grease bring this back up to the darker original colour? Might be worth a shot, then you wont have to replace the decals 8)
