Here she is, my 89 Rockhopper Comp in flamboyant red

Decal scourtesy of gil, who else...

not sure what to do with it, restore as original or funk up to go with the re-spray..

Picture does not do the colour justice, it's really quite beautiful to behold..

Just got these through the post and they have made me think how cool it would be to pimp it up... Though they are retro..answer hyperlites.

gump

it was done by colour-tech based in Dartford, for the whole process and putting the decals on & lacquering + couriering to me was £100. It's one of the more expensive metallic paints..

Really does look awesome...

I think I have enough retro steeds that are authentic, this ones getting pimped...

I'll let you know about the build date (and get the kettle on), probably won't be for a while to be honest ...

Wouldn't be going either of those bars with the colour you've chosen for the frame myself.

I have a nice silver Hyperlite i'd swap for your blue one though... :) :wink: :wink: :lol: :lol:
