Not gone the lipstick, powder and paint route - amazingly there is still some paint clinging to this Mantis...
Much detailing to be done before it hits the light of day. Struggling with the rear brake and rear mech cable routing for this model - the MBA picture shows the rear mech cable passing outside the swingarm pivot, yet other pictures I have collected show different routings - I think they're ll pretty compromised mind!
Still haven't found out if this is a Redline or an earlier RC manufactured one - in the MBA test the lower rear swingarm, spring and Mag21 lowers are green - was that a special or a production colourway - do you have any thoughts?
