Thanks for the positive comments folks

This site and forum gave me some inspiration and help so cheers folks

The respray was in fact courtesy of Halfords. I nitromorsed the frame and used some etch primer followed by primer and a number of top coats with a rub down using 600, 800 and 1200 wet and dry in between.

Forks are Gussets

Cheers
Matt

looks great, what is the chain tensioner you are using or are you in a magic gear?

No not quite the magic gear

Chain tensioner is a DMR Chain reactor.

It works well

That is a fantastic looking bike! I bought a 1995 Lava Dome frame this morning, what you have done has given me food for thought!!!!!!!
