Oh no!! :shock: My hopes and dreams are dashed

I'd noticed the main-tube decals were a little larger than they're supposed to be, but as they're lacquered under it'll have to wait until I need to re-spray. (could be a while as it barely looks like it's been used since the refurb)

I can live with it – for now

Gives me an excuse for a candy red in due course :D

I absolutely wouldn't care too much about the decals. Looks great.

Finally the last pieces of the puzzle land on my mat and a happy, if rather damp, evening later I've built the Wicked.

But is she finished?

Thoughs, comments (he say's whilst ducking for cover) :lol:

Good effort.. is it a rider?

After owning two, I gotta say these are best with a rigid fork. The suspension is just going to slow that down, and it must weigh upwards of 30lbs in its current form.
