It's a really good find, but that's quite a big frame you've got there isn't it? Looks like a size 20, which is a bit bigger than your other bikes I've seen.

Most of those 93 Blizzards have lost their wraparound decals and the paint looks bad underneath because it wasn't intended to be on public view. Somebody on retrobike was going to repaint his on account of that a few weeks back. It would be a noble thing if you took ace quality photos of all the decals and let Gil_M have them, so that he could reproduce those decals for other owners in need.

I would love to have a witty response to this but I'm still a bit bemused by the imagery in my head right now!

its an 18.5 according to the rocky catalogue. My other bikes do tend to be a bit smaller (as long as they have a decent top tube seat tube doesnt bother me) I'm 6ft 1 so I can fit anything from a 17 to a 20 but I prefer them smaller cos of me back!!

The actual Rocky Mountain and the logos are already done (the text is quite easy, other than getting the size and spacing correct for you bike)

The Blizzard and anything else would be good I would think.
