After a good tidy up, a singlator, a new headset & B/B bearings, a new chain, a pair of tyres, a pair of Onza HO canti's, a tub of paint stripper, a can of primer and a can of 'Saphire Blue', here she is. Grand total of about $AU60 (incl. the price of the bike!).

I went for the current style of decal because I think they look cool...

I thought i'd add the 'before' and 'during' pics aswell.

Awesome!

Want to set my Alpinestars up in the same style, ironically managed to find a front mech and the curvy adaptor for the back of the braze-on! all I need is a longer bolt in the same style as the OE Shimano one :D

Still gonna SS it up, especially after seeing this Fisher 8)

Cheers
Stu
