Spotted this frame for sale on here before Xmas and having always loved the paintwork i had to have it.
I was originally worried that being an 18" it may be too small but it fits me (6ft 2") perfectly.
If the snow ever clears i will give it its 1st ride.

the front end offers a nice flush of colour without ruining it.

NICE ! I have same year Backwoods frame.
Currently getting together, I noticed from your earlier pix is the yellow
quite 'egg yolk' colour. It looks in new pix like your Rock shox are a
lighter yellow. Tho still looks cool.

Are your flames decals or painted ?
Any tips colour matching or decals greatly appreciated.
