It's in much beter condition than I expected, there's hardly a scratch on anything.

So hit me with it, Set me a project
I want to paint the forks to match the frame, I have a Salsa stem in the works and Crank is still undecided, Maybe a blue kooka (yes I understand you prejudices- but I haven't bent or broken yet, I've had it for 16 years!)

Hmmmm a project I see here!!!!!!

I actually quite like the disc on that - the Pink decals on the Disc match the paint quite well so I'd keep that....

If it was mine this is what I would do

1. Salsa quill stem is a must if its black as it will match the post well
2. Some nice Amberwall tyres on that beauty
3. Paint the Mags Purple to pink fade at the bottom
4. Get RID of the Blue stuff - it just doesnt suit the frame - Silver would be much nicer on that frame
5. Flite Saddle
6. Come up to Wellington with it so we can go for a dam ride!!!!!

Agree on the blue parts but the mags in gold look good on that.

Top build :D

Agreed.

Definitely a black stem would be better and a black handlebar too.
If you repaint the forks, then please make sure the paint really matches the frame. And you could also attach Klein decals on the legs as well.
