Just found this on Youtube. Havent seen this bike on here so assuming the builder doesnt post on retrobike? His channel has loads of other Retro bike restoration content :cool:

Another channel you guys might like is 'Old Shovel'. Hes got a few nice restomod projects on there and does his own custom paint jobs. Not for the purist though but I think its cool. Well most of it (Apart from yellow tyres on the Kilauea. What was he thinking! :facepalm: :LOL: )

Re:

There is an old shovel video of a Gary fisher mamba.... oooof, probably the ugliest paint job I’ve ever seen on a bike. I do like watching the videos

True, thats one of his dodgy ones for sure.

I liked the red to orange fade he did on the 98 Voodoo Wanga though.

Also worth a watch is GMBN 'Retro Week' from last year (2019). Theres a really good video where Doddy goes to see an amazing collection of Kliens :cool:

Mods: Maybe we could make a sticky thread for all the retro content on youtube? Call it 'retrobike tv' perhaps? Or even better why not create our own retrobike youtube channel, showing, reviewing, and riding retro bikes?
