Is it just the photo or do they almost have a neon hue to them?


Just the photo :lol:

Standard Indy yellow paint, just buffed to within an inch of its life and some fresh RS decals. Now, I know they arent standard Indy issue, but I prefer them personally.

I agree, way better look than the indy decal. Indy decal always looked cheap to me.

Right, have the house to myself tonight so seazed the opportunity to crack on with this bad-boy.

Old decals removed and frame cleaned up. Just now need to give it a polish, and order some repo decals.

Forks changed to Rock Shox Indy SL, seatpost changed, stem chopped for an original GT Flip-Flop and the SACHS shifters/XT levers ditched in favour of some mint LX units.

I have now stopped for a breather, but will crack on it a bit cleaning up the wheels and changing the tyres.

For now, here are some pics.
