Hola guys!!!

I've repainted the YO EDDY! for a friend of mine in Kandy Wild Cherry - yes, it's the original color! :D And of course including original decals! He is going to build it with a NOS Suntour XC PRO and further silver parts.

Cool. Coming from someone who tried KWC and failed... yours (friends?) came out great.

But you're concealing a saratoga FAT as a somerville one...no no.

Now that.. is a damn nice colour on a damn nice frame.. in fact that could well be a strong contender for the Klein respray over the winter. :D
