Heh! You do like your DeKerfs Dave! :)

Hey, you go to work all week, you're entitled to some luxuries in life or else what's it all about?

I'm the last person to be saying anything anyway, I've spent a fortune on bikes and bike related stuff over the years, but I'm definitely not the worst!

:)

There is now way around it. It is a lot of money however you look at it but not only are you getting a superb bike, but you are getting a custom made superb bike and that's gotta be worth something comapred to some of the tat that is out there for a whole lot more expense!

Can't wait to see the finished product.

Jez

The frame is costing me £1425.

It's being painted Arancio Atlas which is a pearlescent orange used by Lamborghini.

Nice isn't it?

When we got the sample through yesterday I was really pleased with it, it's pretty close to our own Fast Orange shade, but it's a little lighter. I can't wait to see it on David's bike! :)

Wow, Arancio Atlas looks fantastic. Does it have an indusry standard colour code ( I forget what it is called, RAL?) or was it one of Dekerfs own blends?
