I wasn't planning on another project anytime soon, but this '89 with almost (not catalogue seat or tyres or rear wheel) complete original kit was on e-bay for the equivalent of a few rounds of drinks (London prices)so she had to be saved.
just not sure which way to go, the old catalogue pictures show her in a darker green not dissimilar to the elusive '85 Canyon.
so do I painstakingly attempt to trace around then guess what the faded sticker inks should be or just dress her up in homage to the Canyon as the stickers are readily available? (but keeping the white forks & bars of course).

So I thought I'd canvas your opinions and add a little poll just for fun.

Yeah...maybe, any recommendations regarding a sticker producer?

Very observant Mr Cheese, I’ve just popped out to the workshop to check, also it’s only got 5 gears not the 6 it should have. The good news though, is it’s still round! :D

Anyway, you haven’t voted yet, what’l it be?

i may well take you up on that offer sir, I'll PM you when i'm getting closer to the build.

Ok so its 5-0 so far and it looks like the Pagan's getting some replica stickers after all....
Now, a question about the colour, in all photos of old Pagans, they have this bluey-green that always looks sun bleached, and with not having any over-spray on the forks hiding in the head tube, I'm not so sure what the colour should be, the stickers certainly are faded. The picture in the 1989 catalogue looks like a proper green and the sales bumpf even describes the paint job as "shimmering green" so does that suggest an older model might have had the pearl green that the Canyon had?
Elswick-Hooper/Falcon had I believe taken Claud Butler and Holdsworth over in 1987, so did the Pagan get produced in '88 in this "shimmering green" I wonder?
Has anyone found a 1988 Falcon/CB catalogue?
