Love rainforest. Remember having one of these in the bike shop I worked in as a Saturday boy.

Thanks for all the comments!

@jonrock: a German.....

Was on the German site a few weeks ago, the owner said it was repainted by himself...only the primer and the clearcoat where done by a professional painter. He had also a original tube alongside while doing the thing...

I think it looks really good, haven't seen an original one yet, so can't really compare.


Do you know what technique is used to have this rainforest result? how is coating used?

I don't know exactly, but i used this on my Mardigras, i think he used something similar. Clear cloat is just added afterwards. The frame feels maybe not as smooth as a "normal" paint, but it's not "rough" either.

Very nice find indeed, and a good paint job. Build puts frame forward, I like it a lot
