I could be totally wrong, but I'd still put my money on anodized finish over paint. When you move in the ti anodization spectrum from purple to green, there's blue color in between. And if my eyes are not fooling me, there's a hint of blue in the fade between the green and purple? Just thinking out loud :D


He’snt anodised but he have nice peacock fade custom paint... 8)

That is special, really beautiful. Echoing previous comments the forks let it down.

Thank you all for your comments. :)

When I bought the frame, the seller gave me all the original papers.
The purchase order, specifies that the fork is matching color, all American parts with Boulder brakes and XTR drive train.
In 1992 the XTR groupset is the novelty of the year.
At the time, it had to be what we could do better and more expensive. :facepalm:

I will try to do it as it was at the time.

answer your questions about the fork, I have many possibilities in stock (mag 20, 21, 21SL or FSX).
But I think mount as original Mag 20 and Control Tech matching paint.

See this Boulder Defiant steel with same paint...

A have a couple of extra RS1s if you think that might suit even better.

I accept your proposal, thank you.
But I think to mount a Mag 20 as in the catalog, to see ...
