Sweet!

They are nice honest chaps at Argos aren't they?

I collect a frame Saturday morning on route to MM and having seen the finish on yours I cannot wait!

More pics though...........

Are the forks colour matched with the main triangle?

That looks cool roon

Did they overspray with red clear or is it solid milka? did they colourmatch or std colour?

Thinking about getting my fat done at some stage, and this is one of my fave colours.

sweet :)

That is going to be ace. Love that colour, I was tempted to do mine that shade.
So the race is on to see who finishes their SAB first! Just waiting on fork spares and a hub to get mine out and dirty!

Cheers chaps, to answer the questions..

..no overspray on it, gone flat Milka.. I did think about how specific to be on the paint and having read on FatCogs about the variations in paint colour at Fat City that if it was slightly "off", who was to say they hadn't done that colour before anyways!

It's a standard colour that Argos offer, it wasn't custom in any way. I was down in Bristol a month or so ago so had a good look at their charts etc. It's a pretty spot on match for my Yo 8) Gump I can highly recommend the colour, even more so actually going to Argos and chatting with them when you drop the frame off..

Forks are currently at Argos, I had to send them separately [I'm lazy]..

I reckon you'll be first out on the trail Dr. S :twisted:
