Thanks sooo much to MikeD, I have a new MHO frame to play with. I don't want to build a bike at the moment for a few reasons, plus it has a small crack around the cable hangers which is a potential failure point, but I love these frames so much, I just wanted it nice and to have it on the wall :P I can stare at it for hours, the workmanship is so amazing!

So it arrived blue as in the first pic, but I like the green as it's what my old one was. I did want a bit of a change though, so decided on a metallic green a bit darker than the Kawasaki green of the standard colour.
A couple of weeks at a local spray shop (they were moving premises, so took longer than normal) and it came back this lovely colour :D
I'm well chuffed with it and fallen in love all over again :P
Now I'm after a late model frame with disc mounts to spray and build up slowly!

Thank you so much again Mike....if I ever see you around, I definitely owe you a drink or three!

Sweet! 8)

Always wanted one of these BITD, still wouldn't mind one!
I agree, they look great in Kawasaki green but your re-spray looks the shizzle too. :wink:

Very nice, look forward to seeing it built up :), used to work for the UK importer bitd and I bought one of the first frames, sadly swapped for a stereo as could not afford to build up :cry:
