Recent purchase. It's faded from the original purple (like the Lavadome) to blue! >>>

Any plans to get painted back to the original colour?

Like this! (can't remember who on here it belongs to) >>>

Not sure yet. I may just go all black. And not sure whether to fit Mag 21s, Project 2s or RC31s? :?

P2's all the way for me.....they suit the frame so well, that last pic is perfection in terms of scale.....

That will just ride so well, a re coat in an Original colourway would look so kool too, is it an 18 or 19?

I may go for P2s then. I've got a pair but they're ahead not threaded - oh well! I like the look of the '92 Kilauea with matching frame and forks so I might respray them both in black.

It's an 18" centre to top, I think, maybe smaller. The long head tube makes it look bigger in the piccy.

every now and again a picture just looks right, you can tell the bike will ride nicely.....i dont understand the reason, it just 'does'........that is a good example!.....
