Why not upload the images to a public server or flickr so that anyone can recreate and print out the decals?

Neil - get those blizzards done before that other bike frame arrives from NZ!!!

took the bike totally apart today (the headset came out by hand!) and the thing is beautiful. there is hardly a scratch on her - some t-cut and she will shine!!

graftons are perfect, but i'll sell them as i'm not going blingy with this one as its a race bike after all so full xt with some smart hubs(yet to be decided)

the fork crown bolts are seized and i may have to drill them out.

syncros post cleaned up well and is off to be re-anodized! will go for a canadian build with this one.

got some nos bontrager bcr 2 or 1 rims on their way now!!


pics to follow - its too dark now
