Had this for a while it was in poor condition paint wise but no frame damage so was put to one side untill a rainy day, well thats been and gone,
first things first how does it feel, a quick build just to see if i like it,,

Ive not had long enough to give an opinion on how it rides but it felt nice, so off for stripping and a re-paint, I'm liking blue at the moment so opted for a pearlescent blue color, its still basically a shed bits build but things will change in time, also waiting on some decals,

That's looking good already, although I'm not entirely sure what I think of the leather sofa,,, erm saddle.

I'm a big fan of the Diabolo; mine is in storage at the moment as even though I'm currently not using it, I really can't sell it because it is too much fun to ride.

Looking forward to seeing how yours progresses.

Like the build, weird angle of the thumbies perhaps?

GREAT colour choice of the frame!
