Frame no: A405****

Picked this up recently from a member here. Came without tyres, saddle & bar ends. Bit of a mix up build the previous owner put together for commuting. I've got a pending classic '91 orange/white fade build but also liked the later blue/silver fade with these decals. Not sure what to do with it yet. Tempted to touch up the frame (looks better in pic) & leave it as a mix-up survivor but swap out some of the parts for other stuff on hand. Can always do a full period resto in future years. It'll be ridden.

Good find...

I also like this colour combo and the look better the more purple bits are lashed on em...

I’m going through same predicament with a 96 stumpjumper I have acquired... rides great but paintwork and decals are just beyond me being happy with a touch up.

Looking forward to how you play this one... it’ll be great either way.

Cheers. I'm probably nicking the purple Middleburn ring for another bike! I keep thinking full paint job & resto but I have two others pending the full resto treatment & this bike may be one of my main hacks so the plan, if I can stick to it, is touch up the paintwork with rust-stopper, touch up paint, clear nail lacquer & a cheap set of decals & a few stickers. I've 2 sets of later X517 wheelsets (citron & silver) on Hope Ti hubs to give it a treat. I'll be changing the groupset up a bit but nothing flash.

Maybe save the full resto treatment until I retire.

The only ones I've got with decals with lacquer over are my y2k era P7's.
