It's still away being painted, I've yet to see it. I'll post some pictures as soon as I get it back.

So is the frame back from the painters yet???

I'm watching this with interest, slowly (very slowly!!) building up my Prestige as well, interesting to see how you got the Pace fork legs re-chromed, looks good as new :)

It's still with the painters but as a mate has agreed to paint it for free I just have to be patient.

I've got everything for the build so it'll be a quick bolt together job once it's painted.

Just picked this up, very excited:

In the end rather than getting my mate to do the paint work I splashed out and got it done by Griff's and TJC, it looks amazing the pictures do not do it justice.

The initial blue power coat was done by Griff's http://www.realitymotorworks.com/
The white paint decals and lacquer where done by TJC http://www.tjcdesign.com/
And the facing was done by Rule 4 Cycles http://www.rule4cycles.co.uk
