Back in the day we had a talented friend who made small characters from the gang to fit to our bikes, much like those drift characters the kids fit to cars nowadays.
Mine was Coleman Cow, I'll dig it out and photo it.

Thought I should take a few snaps before this goes in for a re-spray.

Mint and his friends on my 1990 Overbury's Pioneer. The stickers came free with MBUK, it says 'Never lose faith in the colour of the sky.' Deep, man.

This is on one of the locker doors at work, done by the man himself. Needless to say, I took the door off when they were throwing the lockers out!

This is what I always lusted after. The mint sauce Zinn. I spoke to Jo about it a little while a go and he assures me that the bike was sold and then got trashed shortly after...anybody got a Zinn 753 frame they've got going spare...? :lol:

Nice, Gio! Could you elaborate a little for a relative newbie? What's the story with the bike?

As far as I know it was given to Jo as a promotional piece. I can't imagine its anything other than that...

It was one of only a handful of 753 that Andy made and then Jo drew up and added the decals. It had Magura hydrostops and XT (with Campag Thorr rims) as far as I recall from talking to Jo.
