Thats a cool idea........i've got a dead M2 frame that I might do that to.......be interesting to see inside one of those ;)


Possible PotM theme "Wall-art Frames" ? :D
Anyway ; I have found a painter who claims he can do mine justice ; so next step is to make sure Gil_m has the right stickers before I take all the paint off.

Great project - same as my beginning one. I'm actually also looking for a painter, who can mix the exact - AWSOME - colour. Probably I'll only get the worst scratches fixed and keep the rest of the paint.

Good luck with it; it's a very cool bike!

Thanks ; this is actually my first ever respray and indeed first restoration so I'm up against the fear barrier -- part of me says to do the same as you and just get the bad bits done so as to keep the rest original. But ; lot of salt in the air here so the other part says to bare metal it and get new paint. **Procrastinate Mode Enabled**

Used it mainly on the road ; as you can imagine with those tyres :oops: -- although I did carry it over a muddy puddle once when a shortcut didn't work out. Pretty racey feel to it ; very direct and no flex at all. Thought I should get a post up as most of the parts will soon be robbed for a frame that's incoming.
