Thanks for the possitive feedback chaps 8)

I know some of you had reservations about painting instead of polishing, but I think it may have just worked :wink:

More to follow tomorrow.....

Like those decals on that colour mate.. Punchy :D can't wait to see the final result. Are you going to stick with those tyres? Skins may do it a bit more justice in terms of making those forks stand out??

Thanks for the comments guys.

The build is coming along well, in fact better than I inititally thought :lol:

The purple, silver and black scheme is spot on.

Surprising what a difference those decals have made to the overall look. I wasn't keen on the colour when the first pics were posted but it looks great decaled up.
Top job, good on'ya for being bold and doing something different.
