That's grand! When I pick one frame up from the painter soon, I'm going to have to ask about getting my LHS done :facepalm:

I prefer it with the blackwalls though - makes the pink stand out more I think, and the Montana Comp came with blackwalls originally (mine still has the original 1993 smoke dart on the front :shock: :lol: )

Looks really good :) Bet you're dead pleased with it !

I've hopefully got another one on the way to me soon, if I can agree terms with the seller. This one is gonna be done original rather than super bad taste like the last one I did :mrgreen:

Looks amazing with the amber walls...


Thanks :)

Not sure if I prefer the amber-walls or the black, as per original look/spec :?

Cheers

Could build - looks great with the amber walls!

You can sometime pick up 1.9 blackwall megabites or smokes cheap - they would look ace too.

Always liked the look of these bikes.
